logo-citylibraryThe Friends of Santa Clarita Public Library invites the community to enjoy several exciting events this October and November. On Monday, October 28 through Monday, November 4, the Friends will host a book auction at the Canyon Country, Valencia, and Old Town Newhall library branches. Then, on Thursday, November 7, the Friends group will host a special evening with writer Alan Brennert, author of Palisades Park, at the Canyon Country Library branch.

The holidays are just around the corner! Residents who are interested in picking up rare and collectable books at reasonable prices to add to their own collection or to give as gifts won’t want to miss the Friends of Santa Clarita Public Library book auction. The book auction will take place at all three Santa Clarita library branches beginning on Monday, October 28 at 10:00 a.m. and concluding on Monday, November 4 at 10:30 a.m., and will include a wide selection of books for readers of all ages and genres.

On Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 7:00 p.m., join writer Alan Brennert, author of Palisades Park, for a special author event at the Canyon Country Library branch. Recognized as a New York Times bestselling novelist, Brennert will share commentary and background behind his newest adult fiction novel, “Palisades Park,” a spellbinding tale about a family of dreamers and their lives within the legendary Palisades Amusement Park. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and no RSVP is needed to attend the event.

The Friends of the Library is an active group of community members who value libraries by volunteering, advocating and fundraising to meet the many needs of the Santa Clarita Public Library. They operate used book stores at each of the City’s three library branches and host various fundraising and cultural events throughout the year. All proceeds raised by the Friends of Santa Clarita Library go to support programming and events at all three branches.
