Friends of Harrison Memorial Library
Friends of Harrison Memorial Library is a non-profit volunteer organization
that provides support for library activities and helps purchase needed
books and equipment.
Annual Book Sale
A sale is held every August at Carmel Mission's Junipero Serra School Gymnasium
on Rio Road. Close to 10,000 books, videos and
audiobooks are available, and proceeds go to the library.
Donate books, audiobooks, and dvds to the sale by dropping them off
at Sunset Center (San Carlos and 10th) on Tuesday mornings between 10:00 and
12:00. Unfortunately, the Friends are unable to pick up books from your home. No condensed books,
text books, records, or magazines, please.
Ongoing Book Sale
Gently read books are sold year-round at the Heritage Society's First Murphy
House. Proceeds go to the library. The
First Murphy House,
located at Lincoln and Sixth, is open Wed-Sat, 12 to 3 pm. (Hours
subject to change- call to confirm). Knowledgeable
docents are ready to share information about early Carmel. For more information call 831-624-4447.
The Friends promote awareness of the library in our
community by hosting author programs for the public and sponsoring a bookmark contest
for area youth.
Members of the Friends of the Library receive announcements of author programs and
an invitation to the "Friend's Preview" for the annual book sale.
