We stopped out of curiosity to see what was going on here. They have music sometimes and that must be the draw at night when you cannot see the grounds. During the daylight hours it is ramshackle, run down, and in need of a property manager, to clean it up for the patrons to visit.
Visiting the Henry Miller Library was on my bucket list. I have read nearly all his works, but found a few I had not -- made some book purchases and let myself be taken back to the Big Sur of Henry Miller and all of his adventures and friendships.
