Comic Hero Quote by Chris C.
Art in Our Library is pleased to present “Comic Hero Quote” from August 5 to September 9, 2022, at the Peninsula Center Library. “I’ve always loved comics and how they can inspire young and old. The process of creating this art brings me back to childhood and helps me remember the excitement of seeing all my heroes on brightly colored comic strips. Fusing the comics with bold and motivating ideas just seemed natural, and so fun to design. You are your own hero!” – Chris C.
Books By Mail
PVLD’s Books By Mail service is for home bound Peninsula residents residing in zip codes 90274 and 90275 who are unable to travel to the library or do not have a friend or relative to check out library materials on their behalf.
How it works:
- Patrons receive deliveries through the U.S. Postal Service and send their materials back using the same bag and a pre-paid postage stamp included in the delivery. Patrons may request specific materials or request librarians curate materials for them based on the Reading Preferences Survey. Holds must be placed with the librarian and not online through a personal account. Patrons may check out books (including large print), audiobooks, and DVDs. DVD Rental fees apply. Renewals are allowed as long as no other patrons have a hold on the item. A new shipment of materials are sent once the previous shipment has been returned to the library by the Postal Service. Participants may complete an online application or may download, print, and mail the application to register for the Books By Mail service. Once your application has been approved you will receive an email or phone call confirming your participation in the service. For more information contact the Books by Mail Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 310-377-9584 x 601.
Lets Talk Music
On Thursday, August 4, 2022, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., you can enjoy the sounds of The Sam Graham Trio (Jazz concert) in the Peninsula Center Library Community Room. Drawing on an extensive repertoire of jazz standards, The Sam Graham Trio also explores roots in pop and rock music with innovative and surprising adaptions of unexpected songs. This is “Jazz for Moderns.”
