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 are also proud to have an impressive selection of vintage books, including some real treasures of antiquity.

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.

In addition to in-person sales, we also sell books online as a vendor through Amazon. Check out our page and see what we have as well as what people are saying about us!

Book donations are currently limited. Please contact Karen Scott with the Friends of the Capitola Library at for more information.
