Friends have published two cookbooks, “Around The World-Around Our Town” (1986) and “Around The World-Around Our Town”(1998). The books are composed of recipes from local cooks in San Pedro and restaurants, which are mostly gone now. They are truly a piece of local history and if you are interested in purchasing them, they are on sale at the Friends Book Store at $8.00 or the two for $15.00. A true bargain and all the money raised goes toward supporting our programs at the Library.
