Blowout Book Sale Celebrating Prueter Library’s 25th Birthday

The Pulitzer-prize winning author (“Winds of War”) Herman Wouk once wrote: “The door available to everyone that can lead to happiness and success is the modest door of the public library.”

On April 18th from 10 to 4, we will be celebrating the 25th Birthday of our public library with a blowout book sale.  Most items will be priced at 25 cents or less.

Twenty-five years ago, the Ray D. Prueter Library was dedicated and named in honor of the beloved Port Hueneme mayor who served from 1962 to 1974.

The bespectacled, open-faced and perpetually smiling Prueter was a regular visitor to his namesake library.

He often introduced himself to the children browsing the shelves and then chuckled when they would recognize him as “The Library Man.”

He was also known to make an impromptu donation of pricey educational materials whenever he discovered that such supplies were out of the financial reach of a small town library.

While the self-deprecating Prueter, who passed away at 87 on April 7, 2008, was tickled at the prospect of having a library named after him, he also took special pride in the building’s unique archetectural features.

The ocean, so cherished by Prueter as well as the folks who populate Port Hueneme, is front and center in the wave-like forms of a roof designed to maximize use of natural light as well as the sea-colored Italian glass mosaics that decorate the outside and inside of the entryway.

All bargain hunters are cordially invited to browse the hundreds of gently-used paperbacks, hardbacks, videos, and audio books (categorized by subject) on our sunny entrance patio.  If you are especially interested in cook books or books for young children, you will find a wide selection available this year.

All proceeds from the sale will be used to fund programs for children, teens and adults at the Prueter Library.

Call 805 488 0363 for further information.
