After a long hiatus due to the Covid pandemic, the Friends of the Santa Monica Public Library are hosting the Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium on Saturday 6th.
Five thousand books are available for sale, including both hardcover and paperback, fiction, nonfiction, art, children’s and young adult books, at prices ranging from $ 2 to $ 5. Only cash.
The proceeds from the sale will benefit library programs, which are particularly important given the budget cut in library funding. Participants must wear a mask.
