Proceeds from Rare Books Palm Springs’ opening night cocktail reception benefited a variety of organizations, including our Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA).  

The UCR Library gladly joined Rare Books LA, the premier producer of antiquarian book fairs in California, for a new show — Rare Books Palm Springs! 

Rare Books LA produces rare book fairs which feature leading specialists in antiquarian books, fine prints, photography, ephemera, maps, and more from throughout the United States and Europe. 

Rare Books Palm Springs took place on May 20 and May 21 in Downtown Palm Springs at Hotel Zoso and featured over 40 leading booksellers from across the nation. 

As a cultural partner for Rare Books Palm Springs, the UCR Library was provided a unique Eventbrite link that allowed us to promote the opening night cocktail reception to the UCR community and receive 100% of the proceeds. The UCR Library was also able to distribute information on our collections at the event.  

If you missed the book fair, you can support SCUA and the UCR Library year-round by making a gift at
