Saturday, 3 August, marks the third month that the Friends of the Pacific Grove Public Library are hosting their book sale at St. Mary’s-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church. Not only have the donors to these sales managed to find their way to the new site but the bibliophiles have as well. Customers say they really appreciate how nice it is to browse shelved books rather than books in boxes as has been the case in the past. “It feels like a real bookstore!” enthused Friends board member Linda Pagnella.
The “bookstore” nearly overflows with all manner of literature, non-fiction (lots and lots of biographies and history), art and cookbooks, music CDs, videos, puzzles, and an entire section devoted to young adults and children’s books and videos. And collectors, take note! There is an area of rare books, curated by Mary Anne and Ben Whitten, that merits serious exploration.
This August event will debut a new opportunity to stock up on fresh reading material. Patrons can load up on “red dot” items at 5 for $1! Now that’s a deal!
Come browse and see for yourself on Saturday, 3 August, 10AM-4PM, at St. Mary’s, corner of Central and 12th in PG.
