rt Treasures of the Louvre" and "Growing Old Is
Not for Sissies" sat in side-by-side boxes on the
floor of the old Los Gatos library earlier this week, a
sure sign there's still a lot of work to do before the Friends of
the Library Bookstore reopens on June 6.
The bookstore closed in October 2014 so the 50-year-old
former library building could be remodeled. Much of the
building will be occupied by NUMU, the New Museum Los
Gatos that also opens June 6.
On the NUMU side, staff members are hanging art work
on the first floor in preparation for the grand opening.
On the Friends side, several thousand gently used books
that were stored in PODS behind Los Gatos High School
are slowly being emptied and shelved.
"Some of the new shelves were installed a few weeks ago,
but we have more shelves coming that need to be installed,"
Friends president Marlene Rodman said.
That's delayed the return of the books, but one POD was
emptied during the weekend of May 16-17.
The Friends of the Library is an all-volunteer organiza-
tion that runs the bookstore to help pay for programming
