We have temporarily suspended accepting book donations at this time. 

The Friends Bookshop features a curated selection of previously-owned high-quality contemporary and vintage fiction and nonfiction. Generous donations of books from the community allow us to raise funds through large semi-annual sales and a regularly restocked bookshelf in the main room of the library. All books sold online have been quarantined, cleaned, handled with gloves and masks, and wrapped to maintain sanitation.

As a thank you to buyers, during COVID-19 reduced library hours, we’re offering free *local* contactless delivery to zip codes 92014 (Del Mar) and 92130 (Carmel Valley). All orders outside these zipcodes are shipped via USPS at Media Mail rates. Shipping charges added at check out. No returns or refunds.
