Upcoming Friends' Events

Check out our upcoming Friends' events on our Fall Newsflyer. Read about our Annual Dinner and Election at Ports 'O Call Restaurant, League of Women Voters, culinary lectures, and our annual January speaker event. Come and spend some wonderful time with Friends of San Pedro Library. Look forward to seeing you there!

Friends Annual Dinner and Election

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.

New Hours at the Library

There has been a change in library operating hours for all libraries recently. Central Library and regional branch libraries will be open during the same hours and the branch libraries will have their own set of hours. The Central Library and branch libraries have been open on Sundays starting January 12, 2014. Thanks voters! The restoration of hours was made possible by voter-approved Measure L which was passed in March of 2011.
