Holiday Bag of Books Sale a Complete Success

Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017 - 10am - 4pm 

Bag with "Sale" on itWhat a work crew! We accomplished so much Saturday, December ninth. First, we brought in $505 (the official count by new treasurer, Jan Ash) in new funds for supporting our Library. Overall, the proceeds from the 2017 Bag Sales are close to $2,200. Fantastic!
Then, we gathered together our complete inventory of books from several storage spots in the library, a move which will help us vacate some areas needed by the library. We did this by gathering together members of the Friends, Library staff, and those from our community. We had fun, exhausting though it may have been. Many thanks for all the work in the set-up, the two shifts of the sale and the teardown.
A warm thank you to the Library staff who put up with our scrambling about and with our demands for their help. Your support is much appreciated.

The SandCastle Girls, the 2017 One Book, One San Diego Title

Picture of Chris Bohjalian and the cover of his book "The Sandcastle Girls"KPBS and San Diego Public Library are proud to present The Sandcastle Girls by New York Times bestselling novelist Chris Bohjalian.


The Sandcastle Girls is a multi-generational tale that spans nearly 100 years. It is initially set in Syria during World War I and focuses on the Armenian Genocide. “These days it is very important for me to tell people that I am the grandson of two Middle Eastern immigrants,” Bohjalian said. “We are a nation of refugees and immigrants. The novel is set in Aleppo - yes, that Aleppo that has broken all of our hearts the last five years - and the city as it appears in the novel exists now only in romance and memory.”

In the case of good books, the point is not how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.
