Big Sur Library Update

Another update on the Big Sur Library:
The Library closure has been extended ( again) until June 1st…

However, the library is now located at the Big Sur Grange ( hooray!) on Fridays from 11am-3pm, and will be at that location until the official opening of the branch. The Grange is located 0.1 mile away from Ripplewood, heading south on your right hand side. ( There has been so much support to make this new location a reality, and I want to send a big thank you to all involved in this process.)
During this time you will still be able to drop off, pick up holds, and browse through a large collection of materials.
Storytime is still at 11:30 on Fridays.

As mentioned before, please do call the Seaside Library at 899-2055, or any other Monterey County Free Libraries branch for help, visit our Big Sur branchlette located at Ripplewood or visit your account online, and PLEASE do consider signing up for our free Library-by-mail service. They send you materials in the mail for free! Please see here: .

Also, I do want to add that the Big Sur Memorial Day Weekend Bake and Book Sale is STILL happening. At this time, the location is determined to still be on the Ripplewood lawn.
What to do with my donations? Please see the current Round-up for full details, but you may drop off your donated materials at the Grange during ‘open’ hours from 11am-3pm.

Please do share this information with friends and neighbors as appropriate.
Thank you all so much for your support. <3
