JUNE, 2020: Special Happenings @ the Library Shop

Don’t Call it a Comeback!
Guilt Free Shopping is now Touch-Free Shopping! Though we’re still closed to in-person shopping our entire inventory is now available to browse and order online at our revamped website! We’re also offering free, touchless local delivery compliments of everyone’s favorite Shop clerk, Jeff, to ANYWHERE IN SAN DIEGO* within 2 business days of your order or $4.95 Flat Rate Shipping via USPS. Best of all, proceeds from your purchase help support the San Diego Public Library system. We’re also proud to let you know that in addition to posting photos of staff cats on Instagram, all of our work on the new website thus far has been done with the entire staff working from home. We haven’t furloughed or laid-off anyone and though we’re anxious to get back to the Shop we are practicing strict social distancing. We’ve implemented new safety measures for fulfilling online orders which includes wearing gloves and masks at all times in the Shop, wiping down each item as we pack it for shipping or delivery, and limiting access to the Shop to only one employee per day. We’re also working from home behind the scenes to add more products and better product images every day, so please give us a test drive at www.libraryshopsd.org and let us know what you think and what needs to be improved!

*We’re able to deliver to any address within 25 miles of the Central Library

   Library Shop Presents: Librarian Hollywood Squares  

Spent too much of your quarantine binge watching 70’s game show re-runs on YouTube? Yeah, us too, and that’s why The Library Shop is seeking contestants to compete on San Diego’s premiere (and only) Librarian-centric, totally virtual, vintage game-show parody, The Librarian Hollywood Squares. It’s free to sign-up and if selected you’ll vie for great prizes from the Library Shop, but hurry, Season One starts taping June 26th and spots are limited! Sign up HERE.

  The Library Shop is a non-profit book & gift store located in the courtyard of the Downtown Central Library sponsored by the FSDPL and the SDP Library  Foundation.  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.

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.
