Food for Fines: April 10-15

In honor of National Library Week, all SLO County public libraries will participate in the Food for Fines program. The program allows library patrons to donate nonperishable food items in lieu of paying fines in cash. For every one food item donated, $1.00 in overdue fines will be waived. All collected food will be given to the SLO Food Bank. The SLO Food Bank helps to alleviate hunger for SLO County residents.  Bring in your nonperishable food donations to any SLO County public library between April 10 and 15.


T.C. Boyle:  Sunday, May 7 at 3 p.m.

Performing Arts Center San Luis Obispo

Part of the Book & Author Series, sponsored by the Foundation for San Luis Obispo County Public Libraries

The PEN/Faulkner Award-winning novelist and “short-storyista” will discuss his extensive career and the immense joy he finds while creating his work. The author will then perform a new story… which will remind us all of the elemental pleasure of hearing a single voice in a darkened auditorium, taking us to new places.

Special Opportunity:  Do you want to chat with Mr. Boyle in person? A reception for a limited number of people is available the day of his appearance for an additional $40.  Just select “VIP” price when purchasing your tickets and you will receive information concerning how to access the reception.
For tickets:

New Book Bags Are Here!!

​We’ve had so many people asking about our book bags, and now we have a great new selection of many colors with our logo on them.  They are sturdy bags (perfect for carrying books!) and come in lots of fun colors.  They make a great gift, and if you don’t like giving an empty bag as a gift, you can buy some books at our Book Store to fill it up!

​Bags are $10 each, available in the Friends Book Store in the Morro Bay Library.
