Big news for FLACL’s Friends Bookstore! We’ve expanded our business hours AGAIN! We are now open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. With continuation of hours on Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm, we have almost returned to prepandemic operating hours*.
We still maintain safety protocols with facemask requirements, limited occupancy of no more than 4 customers and please, only one reasonably sized bag or box donated at one time.
The Friends Bookstore was closed for 5 months when the library did remodeling of the facilities in 2018 and for over a year in 2020/21 when Los Alamos County shut down for the pandemic. But we have still managed to provide our community libraries with invaluable funding at a critical time. This funding has been used for virtual programing (movement & music, storytime, book discussions…), increasing electronic circulation (Hoopla, ebooks and movies…) plus much more so that our community will continue to enjoy and participate even during these difficult and isolating times.
If you would like more information about making media or monetary donations, becoming a volunteer or joining the FLACL board so you can help our community libraries prosper and progress into the future, reach out to us at www.flacl.org, firstname.lastname@example.org, 505-662-2188 or mail to PO Box 402, Los Alamos NM 87544. If you would like to be kept apprised of Friends Bookstore sales, specials and events, “like” our Facebook page – Friends of Los Alamos County Libraries.
