Saturday, Mar. 21, 2015, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Malaga Cove Library is located at 2400 Via Campesina, Palos Verdes Estates, CA.

The photo above shows Malaga Cove Used Book Sale chairs Pat Foltz sitting and the tall man on the left beneath the the sign for the Vault is Gene Roeder. Christian Gehrke, library assistant, stands by after just loading the “dumb waiter” with books to move upstairs to the main library after picking up circulation items from the front drop offs. Pat and Gene work six mornings per week sorting donated books, pricing them, and preparing for the monthly sale. And for you regulars, the kitchen on book sale weekends always has freshly baked Pat Foltz goodies offered free to shoppers.

For any of you who have not had the pleasure of touring the historic library, set aside time to take a self tour while you were there. Built in 1929, it opened as the the Palos Verdes Library and Art Gallery in April 1930.   This Saturday, you’ll see the chess club members playing in the magnificently restored tower room and the origami club working in the main meeting room. The art gallery and the vault, which housed personal effects of community members, is filled with used books and media for sale. The library itself is always filled with people on Saturdays. And the restored gardens are proving that spring has come to the South Bay.

And don’t forget that the Peninsula Friends of the Library always welcomes your donations of books and media. Just call the number below to make arrangements for drop off. You will be provided with a receipt for your income tax.
