The Henry Miller Memorial Library is an arts center, bookstore, and performance venue, championing the late writer, artist, and Big Sur resident Henry Miller, as well as many other, both living and dead, creative individuals living in or near Big Sur.

We’re open year-round, 7-days a week from 11 am to 6 pm. However, some days we close early due to private events or to set up for events at night.

Located in Big Sur, 35 miles south of Carmel-by-the-Sea on Highway One; 1/4 mile south of Nepenthe restaurant. Call us at 831-667-2574.

Come in for a visit, make yourself a cup of coffee, browse our books, and hang out with Theo the cat on our deck.
