why join?

The Friends has pledged $50,000 in 2014 to the Library Renewal Project.

Monterey County Gives! Again!

The Friends of the Pacific Grove Library has been accepted by Monterey County Gives! for its 2014 campaign! Last year, Monterey County Gives! funded scholarships for electronically savvy high school students to help seniors learn how to access electronic materials. The Friends' idea for this year's campaign is to make e-readers available to homebound seniors. This follow-on project to last year's will fund the Pacific Grove Library's acquisition of 20 e-readers and an inventory of books and music for use with them.

Kids and families began arriving at noon, eager to grab a pile of books and slide into a chair or nestle onto a rug and pillows. Participants were treated to bags of fresh popcorn donated by Lighthouse Cinemas and hot enchiladas prepared by Mando’s. All day long, members of the Robert...

400 Members and Counting!

At the beginning of this, the Friends 40th year, we announced that we wanted our membership to grow to 400 by the end of 2014.  WE DID IT -- with three months to spare!  As of October 10, 2014, the Friends of the Pacific Grove Library has 403 memberships. Since a third of these are family memberships, we can count over 550 individuals as Friends.  Thank you.  And keep reminding people you know that the PG Library needs more Friends.
