With the Dana Point Library and Friends of the Library Bookstore soon undergoing closures for construction, the Friends have announced temporary measures to keep their store open.

At the end of June, the library will be closed for a roof renovation project that will replace large aging skylights that cover much of the library. The Friends, the all-volunteer group that supports the library, raised $70,000 toward the project. In order to keep raising funds for future library projects, the Friends will open a temporary bookstore until the library reopens in September.

The bookstore will move to 34189 Pacific Coast Highway for at least the months of July and August. Volunteers are needed to help box up and move the Friends’ stock of books. Interested volunteers can contact Friends president Paul Strauss at president@friendsdanapoint.org.

A book sale will also be held at the current bookstore location, at 33841 Niguel Road, during the last week of June. Discounts of up to 50 percent will be offered.

Target closure dates for the library are Monday, June 30 through Monday, September 1. Library patrons can visit nearby branches in Laguna Niguel, San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano during construction. Visit www.ocpl.org for information on library services at neighboring branches.
