Origami Class with Doris Scott: Every third Saturday of the month.
Our summer music concert at St. Peter's has become an annual event enjoyed by many, but we regret to announce the postponement of this year's event, An Afternoon of Latin Music Extraordinaire, which was to be held on Saturday, July 19th. Please stay in tune for a new date which will be announced at the library and on this webpage sometime in the near future.
Our annual dinner will be held on Friday, October 24th at Ports O'Call Restaurant. This year's guest speaker will the author Henrietta Mosley who has written the book, Point Fermin Lighthouse Families 1873-1927. She will be joined by our member, Martha McKinzie whose ancestors were the last keepers of the lighthouse. Reservations will be sent to members in September and will be downloadable from this webpage at that time. This will be a wonderful opportunity for San Pedrans to enrich their knowledge about San Pedro and for others who are interested in the history of lighthouses in America. Please get your reservations in early. We will probably have a fullhouse as usual.

All branch libraries will be open on Sundays starting January 12, 2014. Regular Sunday hours will be from 1 to 5 p.m. Thanks voters! The restoration of these hours was made possible by voter-approved Measure L which was passed in March of 2011. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony with refreshments and special programs at each of the libraries so come to the San Pedro Library on Sunday, January 12th at 12:30 p.m. and celebrate the reopening of Sundays at the library!
On August 10, 2013, the library celebrated its 125th anniversary. Link to the Powerpoint presentation "San Pedro Library Through the Years" which was shown during the event. You can read about the event on our 2013 Fall 2013 Newsletter also.
