Libros Schmibros at the Hammer


Sat Aug 27-Sun Oct 9 | Public Engagement

Libros Schmibros, the Boyle Heights nonprofit lending library and used-book shop, will bring a version of the literary center to the Hammer Museum via A.I.R., the Museum’s Public Engagement artist-in-residence program.

The Grand Opening and Book Drive takes place Saturday, August 27, 11am-7pm. Visitors receive free museum admission with the donation of books. Click here for a list of desired titles.

During the residency all visitors are welcome to borrow books for free or to keep one if they prefer. In the latter case, Libros Schmibros suggests a donation of half the cover price, except for Westwood and Boyle Heights residents, who are invited to donate just a dollar.
