Monterey County Free Libraries King City Branch (Ryan Cronk/Staff)

KING CITY — Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the King City Friends of the Library is unable to host its annual Winter Book Sale this year.

Monterey County Free Libraries’ King City Branch, however, does have books available for sale. Those interested can ask at the front desk and library staff will provide direction to them. 

The library at 402 Broadway St. is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday.

“Remember to join the Friends of the King City Library by picking up a membership form at the library,” said King City Librarian Robin Cauntay.

In addition, library patrons can sign up for the Winter Reading Program, which is open to all ages. Participants can earn a free new book for reading between Dec. 11 and Jan. 29. Get a reading log at any MCFL branch or sign up online at

The Winter Reading Program will also have workshops hosted through Zoom, including a Youth Virtual Animation Workshop, Adult and Teen Nature Journaling, Adult and Teen Paint Parties, and Youth and Family Paint Parties.

“Register for them ASAP as they are so popular you want to ensure a spot,” Cauntay said.
