Just a quick post about a couple new fun books that just arrived at the shop– Perfect Pops by Charity Ferreira (Mango Lassi popsicle, anyone?)  and Chris Keeney’s Pin Hole Camera Do it Yourself Guide.

This book teaches you how to make a pinhole camera out of A N Y container! Coffee cans, cigar boxes, suit cases, and as it says on the cover…. even a pine nut! Just imagine– you could whip up some homemade Mexican Papaya Agua Fresca pops, and then enjoy them on a sunny day while out taking pictures with your homemade pinhole camera! Now where is our sunny summer weather, Los Angeles?


Yesterday we said farewell to our good friend, Kenny the Bookworm. Kenny has retired from public view for now, although if you’d like to give him a new home let us know! We’d love to find him a new home if you’ve got some place he can go, just contact us at the store.  We now introduce you to our new window friend, the Diana camera!

We’ve got a new focus at The Library Store right now– film photography. Keeping the Diana Mini cameras company we’ve also got a nifty DIY Pinhole Camera Set, a Fisheye camera, the Pop 9 camera (in gold!), and the Oktomat camera!

We’re pretty hooked on the idea of documenting this spring and summer through real film photography, and as we take those pictures they’ll be featured in the display.  Hope this inspires you to take some pictures of your world too!
