The following were purchased by Friends of San Pedro Library for your enjoyment. Click on a title to read a book review. Some books may have an podcast or Wikipedia entry instead of a review. We've tried to include as many different sources, but the opinions expresses by these sources do not reflect the opinions of Friends of San Pedro Library or LAPL. Since reviews are written at the time of their book publication, some reviews may be a few years old. For authors, go to the LAPL database Biography Resource Center (Gale). There will be a new list of books at the beginning of each month. It takes a few weeks for the library to process the books before they are placed on the Friends of San Pedro Library Book Shelf next to the circulation desk.
