For more than 50 years the Friends of the Encino/Tarzana Library has enriched the community with ongoing programs and special events. Programs reach out to community members of all ages with teen activities, children’s reading groups, book clubs, exercise and computer skills classes. Our speaker series has featured memorable authors including Ray Bradbury, Steve Allen, and Leo Politi. At election times, we sponsored a speaker from the League of Women Voters.
We held book sales and opened a book store to enhance the library’s resources. Our first book sales were held outside the library in the patio and parking lot, but in recent years they were moved to the library meeting room. The change in venue offered the opportunity to improve our organization and raise additional money for the Library. We enjoyed annual picnics, often held in Los Encinos State Park. And we took excursions, traveling to such places as The Queen Mary, UCLA’s Japanese Garden, and Catalina.
Due to Covid restrictions, we have sorely missed our book store and books sales and have turned to Zoom programs.
