Message from Magus Toren re: the Henry Miller Library’s (temporary) closure

Dear Friends,

On November 15th a “temporarily closed” sign was hung on the front gate of the Henry Miller Memorial Library.

As you read this, the Library remains temporarily closed. We are currently working with the county to secure the necessary permits and hope to reopen in time for the holidays.

Due to to this closure, coupled with the capital improvements that await us in 2015, the Library remains in a challenging financial position.Donate-button-web

The Library needs your financial support now more than ever.

Whether it’s $500 or $5, your donation matters.

2015’s improvements and related costs include ADA-compliant parking and bathroom renovations, traffic studies, health and planning department permits, a litany of architectural, engineering, and legal fees, and more.

Click here for a synopsis on our progress thus far and the plans for 2015. We’ll also keep you apprised of developments as they unfold.

If you’ve yet to donate, take a few minutes to consider what makes the Library so special.

Think about the first time you walked down the path into the redwood grove. Reflect on the experiences, whether it was an amazing performance or a quiet afternoon on the deck. And ask yourself, “Is the Library worth preserving and improving upon for now and the future?”

If your answer is in the affirmative, consider making a one-time or recurring tax-deductible donation here.

At this time of us applying for a permit to operate/exist it would be very helpful if you also send an e-mail to our planner at the Monterey County expressing your support of the Henry Miller Library – the more support we have the better. Send an e-mail

Thank you for your continued support throughout the years. We couldn’t have made it this far without you.

Looking forward to seeing you in 2015.

Magnus Toren

Executive Director
Henry Miller Memorial Library
