About Friends Book Sales

The Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries hold a few big book sales every year. The books and media sold are the crème de la crème of the library donations, from fiction to children’s books, audio books to CD’s (sorry, no vinyl). Our non-fiction covers subjects from A-Z: cookbooks, crafts, foreign languages and gardening, health & well-being, poetry, religion & spirituality, travel, reference, sports & games, and humor! We also have an impressive selection of vintage books, including some real treasures of antiquity.

“I’ve been looking for this book all over the world. I found it in London for £800. I paid $2 today!” — a customer

The Friends also have several small sales several times a year around the county. The small sales are often themed and bring select books and media to each sale.

To donate books to the Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries for our next Book Sale, please deliver them to your local Santa Cruz Public Library. If you would like to volunteer at a Book Sale, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Ron D’Alessandro at or (831) 427-7707 X7798.
