Lobby Sales at all SCPL Branches
All SCPL branches have a small “Lobby Sale” (a few shelves of books or a book cart). Hardcovers are only one dollar. Paperbacks are 50 cents. Children’s books are 25 cents. All sales are on the honor system – just pay in the can. With every quarter you spend at our “Lobby Sales,” you support the Santa Cruz Public Libraries.
