Spring is almost here and the Friends are working on a number of events for the remainder of the year.
The Friends Program for this month has been changed to a performance by Camarillo musician T.J. Zeiler. Check out the Programs page for future programs.
The Friends’ tours still continue to be very popular. Both March tours are sold out. So if you think will want to take one of the tours, make your reservations now.
The Library will again this year sponsor the “Camarillo Reads.” This year it will feature the book The Songs of Willow Frost by Jamie Ford. It begins on March 1 and ends with Mr. Ford doing a free presentation (funded by the Friends) at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 30.
One other event in March that deserves highlighting is on Wednesday, March 26 at 6:30 p.m. At that time the Library will be screening the classic Buster Keaton film The Cameraman with live grand piano accompaniment by pianist Cliff Retallick. This is your chance to experience silent movies the way they were meant to be shown, and a chance to hear music on the wonderful grand piano that the Friends purchased.
The Friends would like to remind those of you who are visiting this site for the first time or have not visited it for a while to browse the Friends web pages and discover what the Friends organization is all about.
Look at the current Bookstore specials on this page.
If you are new to the area you may have visited the Library and walked right by the bookstore, missing an opportunity to browse the wide selection of used books available at very reasonable prices. As you approach the front of the Library, the Friends Bookstore will be to the left of the fountain.
The Friends have added a Bookstore layout map for new and returning visitors to use. You can locate the link for the map under the Bookstore column of this page.
Use the Volunteer Application form if you are interested in volunteering at the Friends bookstore. You can locate the link for the form under the Bookstore column page. The form can be printed out and dropped off at the bookstore.
The Friends Bookstore is open to serve the public six hours a day (nine hours on Thursdays), and six days a week, except for Sundays and holidays. In order to maintain this schedule, it requires a substantial number of volunteers. Over any given month, over a hundred people donate their time to carrying out one or more of the tasks necessary to keep the Bookstore operating. If you have an interest in working in the Bookstore, please stop in and pick up an application. We are always accepting applications. If there are no immediate openings to fit your schedule, areas of interest or abilities, it will be kept on file until there is one.
One other key to the bookstore is the donations the Bookstore receives. See the Bookstore page for information on the guidelines for donations.
Don't forget to ask the Bookstore personnel about the Friends tote bags we offer that you can purchase. For only $2.50 they have multiple uses.
