I can't believe it's been a year since Ray Bradbury's passing! 
If you've not read any of his books or would love to savor them again, now's a great time to visit the Library, either in person or digitally. Tell them Ray sent you!

It is with extreme sadness that I post the news about Ray Bradbury's passing. Mr. Bradbury was Palms - Rancho Park's literary treasure for many years. He donated generously of his time to attend several Friends' events and regale us all with his rapier wit and great stories about writing Fahrenheit 451 on the rental typewriters at the UCLA library more than 50 years ago! 
Please take a moment and check out the Ray Bradbury pictures on this page - to the right at the bottom.
And do check out one of Mr. Bradbury's wonderful novels or short stories at our Library.
Mr. Bradbury will be smiling down on you.  
RIP, Ray Bradbury, you will be missed!

Did you know that we lost another bookstore in our community??!! The Barnes & Noble Store at Westside Pavilion closed its doors on New Year's Eve. The Bodhi Tree Bookshop, in the West Hollywood area, had been a local literary treasure for numerous decades. They, too, closed their doors less than 2 weeks ago! 
Please support your local library AND our local bookstores before they ALL disappear. That would be a real travesty.
