The Friends of Santa Clarita Public Library will host several events in the next two months. From Oct. 28 through Nov. 4, the Friends will host a book auction at the Canyon Country, Valencia, and Old Town Newhall library branches followed by a special author’s event on Nov. 7 at the Canyon Country Library branch.

The auction will feature rare and collectable books and the events will take place at all three Santa Clarita library branches beginning Oct. 28 at 10 a.m. and concluding on Nov. 4 at 10:30 a.m.. A wide selection of books will be available for readers of all ages and genres.

On Nov. 7, at 7 p.m., join writer Alan Brennert, author of “Palisades Park,” for a special author event at the Canyon Country Library branch, 18601 Soledad Canyon Road. Recognized as a New York Times best-selling novelist, Brennert will share commentary and background behind his newest adult fiction novel, a spellbinding tale about a family of dreamers and their lives within the legendary Palisades Amusement Park. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and no RSVP is needed to attend the event.

The Friends of the Santa Clarita Public Library is an active group of community members who value libraries by volunteering, advocating and fundraising to meet the many needs of the system. They operate used book stores at each of the city’s three library branches and host various fundraising and cultural events throughout the year. All proceeds raised by the Friends of Santa Clarita Library go to support programming and events at all three branches.
