The Peninsula Friends of the Library (PFL) celebrated Oktoberfest at the historic Malaga Cove Library on Oct. 1. The Gallery room and garden area were transformed into a beer garden with Die Gemütlichen Schuhplattler, a German long Alphorn band. Warm pretzels, handcrafted beer from Burnin Daylight Brewing Co., and traditional German foods were enjoyed. A polka instructor taught the crowd to dance. Proceeds benefited the Palos Verdes Library District. to learn how you can get involved.
