THE STORY OF OUR BOOKSTORE
The Bookstore has operated continuously for over 30 years housed in facilities and floorspace generously provided by the City of Hermosa Beach.
In 2021, after nearly three decades operating out of a location on Bard Street, the HBFOL Bookstore was relocated to a standalone shed-like building located on 11th place within the Pier Avenue Community Center complex. This location is where the Bookstore remains today. Relocation and modification efforts began in June 2021, which included moving the entire Bookstore inventory to the new space, building new shelving, and preparing the new structure for use. This immense renovation project was completed in early September 2021, and Bookstore operations resumed soon after.
The Bookstore relocation could only have been accomplished with the help of our volunteers and the Hermosa Beach Police and Fire Department. We are grateful for their support. We are also thankful for grant and in-kind funding support provided by the City of Hermosa Beach, CalWater, and Athens Corporation, which served to defray many of relocation expenses. It is this support that made our move possible.
HOW TO DONATE
The HBFOL Bookstore would not exist without donations.
Our Bookstore accepts donations of books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, board games and jigsaw puzzles. We can accept text books as long as they are no more than 6-7 years old. Please, no sets of encyclopedias or law books. Small collections of National Geographic magazines, no more than 20 issues. As long as the donation items are in good condition, we can find a home for them.
