To all who participated in previous redwood auctions Thank You all for your generosity and support!

We are proud to say that several slabs went to The Wooden Palate in Los Angeles and two went to Pollaro Custom Furniture in New Jersey (check them out to understand why we’re proud!).

The auctioning of the slabs yielded a net income of approximately $110,000 for the Library. The funds come at a very opportune time for us as we are currently working on several upgrades in order to meet regulatory mandates, including structural modifications for ADA compliance, creating a new water system, and upgrading existing bathrooms on the property. (Read more about this HERE)

This is also great news for supporters of the arts in Monterey County and beyond as we look forward to bringing you more programs, music, workshops, film and a quiet place (!) in the future. So once again, from everyone at the Library, thanks so much for your support!

Photos cannot do the wood justice. However the photos below gets close to capturing the extraordinary depth and beauty of pattern this tree has yielded. And what a finished surface can look like!
