EVENTs and Sales
The Friends sponsor several events and exhibits every year, including our quarterly book sales and special creative programs.
LOBBY BOOK SALES
The Friends Bookstore is on the left wall inside the library entrance. All proceeds benefit the Friends. We sell a variety of current magazines and paperbacks (50 cents each) and newer books of all genres. Hardcover and softcover books are individually priced. A free-standing bookcase holds a variety of individually priced books.
OUTDOOR BOOK SALES
We hold book sales three Saturdays per year, usually in March, July, and November. Our next outdoor book sale is scheduled for Saturday, March 18, 2023, 10am to 2pm.
We hold several silent auctions per year. Items for sale are displayed for one month in the community window near the staff desk. Most silent auctions have a theme, such as special holiday gifts or Mother's Day items. We are currently holding a Silent Auction (January 2023) in the window. The next Silent Auction is scheduled for March 2023.
COMMUNITY WINDOW DISPLAYS
Several months a year, we invite Nipomo nonprofit and community groups to display their activities in the Friends' community window near the staff desk. Some of the groups have included SLO Womenade, the Nipomo High School Drama Club, the Nipomo Food Basket, the Nipomo Native Garden, and the Nipomo 4H Club. If your group would like to sponsor a display, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SPONSORED EVENTS AND CREATIVE DISPLAYS
Some of the programs we have sponsored include the annual Trilogy Art Group Art Show and the Watermedia Exhibit of the Monday Morning Painters of the Central Coast Watercolor Society, both of which benefit the Friends. See News and Photos for some pictures of these events.
