After four long months, The Library Store will finally reopen to the public on Friday, April 29.
With a sleek new design by Cory Grosser + Associates, the new store will feature a new layout, new fixtures, and even more merchandise for shoppers, including new custom jewelry, original Los Angeles Public Library-themed items (Socks! Totes! T-shirts! Coasters!), and more.
During the closure, Library Store staffers have been working with new vendors like Thimble Press, Sugar Paper Los Angeles, Greenwich Letterpress, and others to update the collection of eclectic and literary gifts that customers have grown to love in the past 23 years.
Continuing the grand reopening celebration, on Saturday, April 30, The Library Store will participate in the second annual, nationwide Independent Bookstore Day.
During the day, shoppers will enjoy free coloring pages for children and temporary tattoos (while supplies last), exclusive Independent Bookstore Day merchandise, and book signings with authors Laura Lacamara (Dalia’s Wondrous Hair) and Stephen Gee (Los Angeles Central Library: Art and Architecture).
And of course, despite its new look and feel, all proceeds from The Library Store will continue to benefit the Los Angeles Public Library.
