The Library Shop starts 2019 in mid-season form with two major author events, a pop-up Library Shop at a new branch library and our notorious January Clearance Sale!  Happy New Year and may all your resolutions make it through the month!
January Clearance Sale | January 2nd – ?
With our 50% Off Holiday Sale already in full gear, we are adding some of our favorite products from 2018 to the pile for one last hurrah before they make way for the soon to be great gifts of 2019. Your chance for some amazing deals begins Wednesday January 2nd but hurry in as stock is limited and last year’s sale table didn’t last long!

January 17th @ 7 pm: New York Times bestselling author Steven Pinker (The Blank Slate, How the Mind Works) will be visiting Thursday, January 17th @ 7pm for the paperback launch of his latest book, Enlightenment Now, which Bill Gates has described as “My new favorite book of all time.” A book signing will follow the presentation. Tickets are $27 per person and include a signed copy of the paperback edition of the book. Reserve Your Seat now as this event is expected to sell out!

SPEND MONEY, GET STORE CREDITS
Your purchases at the Library Shop at the downtown Central Library have always helped support the 36 branches of the San Diego Public Library System, but now they can help support you as well!  Simply join our Frequent Buyer’s Club next time you’re in and you’ll receive a $20 Store Credit for every $200 you spend.  It’s free, it’s easy, there’s no paperwork & we keep track so all you have to do is shop.  Stop by for full details!

As the plans for Downtown Central Library were being developed, space was set aside for a Library Gift/Book Shop to be located on site. It features a wide selection of well-curated books, gifts, cards, jewelry, and more. Proceeds support all 36 San Diego Public Libraries. Come see why San Diego Magazine named it the best literati boutique in San Diego. Life-members of the Friends of the Library receive 10% off all purchases. The Library Shop also sponsors monthly special events for adults like trivia games, adult spelling bees, and planting succulents workshops. To find out more about the Library Shop, their hours of operation, monthly special events, speakers, books and materials, go to  Library Shop  or call the Library Shop at 619-236-5802.
