Welcome to Logos Books, a not-for-profit used books store in downtown Davis

2014 was a fantastic year for Logos Books: a total of $47,000 in total combined donations was made to Save the Children and Doctors without Borders. This brings our combined donations since we began to a grand total of $200,000!  

As we begin our sixth year as a not-for-profit second hand books store here in Davis, we would like to thank our many dedicated volunteers and, you, our valued customers, for your patronage and support.

February 21, 2015

IMG_1860 IMG_1861 IMG_1863 IMG_1865 IMG_1866 IMG_1869 IMG_1867Many thanks to all who came by this evening to wish us well, as we celebrated 5 years of selling used books in Davis, and making money for “Doctors without Borders” and “Save the Children”. We enjoyed chatting with all who dropped by, and were particularly pleased to see many of our steadfast volunteers who give so generously of their time and energy to us. Among those what have supported us over the years are David Campos and his coterie of musicians who often play at our evening events. Here are photos of his latest group “David Campos and Friends”, as well as a pot pourri of photos of the evening. Enjoy!

Spoke Magazine launches at Logos Books

January 30, 2015

IMG_1788 IMG_1789 IMG_1790 IMG_1791 IMG_1792 IMG_1793 IMG_1794 IMG_1795IMG_1787A reception for “Spoke Magazine” contributors and their friends was held last night at Logos Books, and free issues of the magazine were presented to participants, who also had the great pleasure of hearing the poetry and short stories read aloud. In addition, art work by DSHS students was on display. The beautifully edited first issue of what, one hopes, will be an ongoing publication of DSHS artists, was the responsibility of student Krystal Lau and teacher/advisor Kelly Wilkerson.
Drop by the store soon to pick up a few of the free issues so generously left behind – you will find some very thoughtful writing and a range of imagery represented therein. Above, some photos of the fun!

El Próximo Círculo Español: lunes, el 16 de febrero

January 30, 2015

Spanish conversationAdvanced non-native speakers of Spanish are welcome every third Monday of the month from 7:30 to 8:30 pm at Logos Books, 513 Second Street for lively discussions on various topics in Spanish. Next meeting will be Monday, February 16th.

Hemos oído mucho de los cambios en las relaciones entres los EEUU y Cuba. ¿Qué podemos esperar de los gobiernos de estos dos países? ¿Tiene usted ganas de visitar Cuba?  Y los cubano-americanos que no tienen mucho gusto de ver una normalización entre los dos países – ¿de qué se trata con ellos?

Aquí un artículo del diario “El País” para informarse un poco más antes la discusión en Logos Books, lunes el 16 de febrero, de 19:30-21:00.


Y, otros temas de la parte de Susan Casment:

En el sitio web inmigracionhoy.com hay varios informes sobre el régimen legal para los no-ciudadanos EE.UU.  Un artículo expone los cambios en licencias de manajar en California, otro comenta alrededor de los cambios que hizo Obama por order ejecutivo.

Mixité Sociale – Thème de la Table Française le 11 février à Logos Books

January 19, 2015

ConversationVoici un article envoyé de la part de Sophia, qui m’a fait chercher une définition au site wikipedia français:


Le terme, bien sûr, c’est “la mixité sociale” mentionnée dans cet article.  Et, voilà une définition du wiki français, et l’adresse du site pour que vous puissiez vous y référer vous-mêmes:

En France, dans le cadre de la loi du 13 juillet 1991 d’orientation pour la ville, la mixité sociale est envisagée comme un moyen de diminuer les exclusions et ce qu’on appelle la fracture sociale. La mixité sociale en France serait l’équivalent du melting pot américain. Néanmoins, si les États-Unis sont le pays du melting pot, ils sont aussi celui de la gated community…


La conversation continue . . . comment peut-on rendre la société plus juste et plus accueillante pour les plus démunis, sans que nos libertés civiles soient sacrifiées?  A vous la parole le 11 février à Logos Books, de 19H30 a 21H!
