The Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library Bookstore celebrated its
30th Birthday on July 31, 2012.
Through the years the all-volunteer,
7-day per week establishment has raised
more than $1 million to enhance
library services.

By the way...

You can volunteer to work in the bookstore by asking for an application in the library's administrative office on the second floor or leave your name and telephone number with a staffer in the bookstore and the chairperson of the steering committee which operates the bookstore will call you to arrange an appointment.

Guided by a steering committee, some 60 volunteers work in the Bookstore. Continuous processing, pricing and review keeps the store well stocked with an ever-changing supply of books, magazines, maps and recordings.
