The Friends work with all segments of Berkeley's diverse community--new immigrants, older adults, children of all ages, adult learners, and everyone in between. Join with us--as a member, volunteer, or bookstore patron--to help us support and expand the educational, cultural, and outreach programs of the Berkeley Public Library.
The Friends of the Berkeley Public Library operate two used bookstores. If you are looking for inexpensive books, hard-to-find treasures, popular or esoteric works, wonderful children's books, bestsellers, or gently used good reads, you'll find them in the Friends' bookstores.
Proceeds from the sale of books, plus membership dues and donations, support library programs and events.
