What will the Friends accept?
Books, CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays in good condition. Items that are dirty,
mildewed, dog-eared, or underlined should be disposed of elsewhere. No
Does that include encyclopedias, textbooks, computer or business books?
Yes, but only if they are less than 5 years old and in saleable condition.
Can I bring donations to the Library?
Yes. Donations of less than 5 bags or boxes may be brought to the Friends
Book Sale area (lower level side entrance) from 10:00 am to noon on Mondays and Wednesdays. Smaller donations may also be dropped off inside the library during open hours.
I have more than 5 bags or boxes to donate. What do I do?
For larger donations, please contact the Friends at (415) 384-4732. Due to
space constraints, large donations are accepted after the 3rd Saturday Book Sale each month and are limited to 10 boxes per donation, with a maximum of 2 donations per month.
All donations are tax deductible and the Friends will be happy to provide you with a receipt and a big "thank you!"
Volunteer to work a Friends Book Sale.
