The Henry Miller Library has come a long way since 2004 when Patti Smith performed at our first-ever fundraiser courtesy of Jesse Goodman Presents. Now, a decade later, the Library is faced with an exciting, though somewhat challenging future. We have made considerable progress across the past few years in making the necessary upgrades to meet state regulatory standards. For example, thanks to the incredible generosity of our supporters, we have completed our new septic system.
Our next challenge is a complete upgrade of our water system, which will enable us to continue to provide experiences you can't get anywhere else: incredible concerts, exhibits, short films, outdoor storytelling, workshops, local events, fashion shows - the list goes on! Enter Jesse Goodman Presents and Cibo Matto, guitarist Nels Cline, and poet Eleni Sikelianos, who are generously donating their time and talents for what will be a unique and amazing performance under the redwoods, steps from the Pacific Ocean! All proceeds will benefit the Henry Miller Library and our ongoing efforts to build a sustainable future. Please help spread the word and thanks, as always, for your incredible support!
