Nancy Hauk, for whom the Nancy and Steve Hauk Gallery in the Pacific Grove Library is named, died on July 22. Nancy was born in St. Louis and graduated from Connecticut College, but she lived in Pacific Grove for many years. For a good portion of those years, she ran, with her husband, the Hauk Gallery. Nancy was herself an artist of considerable talent. Some of her art, donated by Steve Hauk, adorns the walls of the PG Library. If you would like something to remember her by, the library has several of her prints available for purchase.
If you’ve spent any time in the Pacific Grove Library this past month, you probably noticed the beer mugs and steins for sale in a display case. Or maybe you bought one, since they have been practically flying out of the Library.
The mug and stein collection donated by Russell and Reitha Weeks will generate roughly $200 in support for the P.G. Library. If you have a collection of interesting and gently-used items that can fit in one of the display cases, consider donating them to the Friends so their sale can keep the Library healthy. It’s definitely a win/win situation.
Great news! The Pacific Grove Library will open on Mondays at 10:00 am instead of 2:00 pm starting June 27. That's four additional hours! For those of you not going to the Farmer's Market, this gives you an opportunity to go earlier and avoid the shortage of parking that starts at 2:00 pm.
