Friends of the San Pablo Library

The Friends of the San Pablo Library is an organization dedicated to improving library services in San Pablo. Through membership donations and Book Sale earnings, the Friends provide the library with books, tapes, magazines, and compact discs. We also provide children's and cultural programs for the community.

Book Sales

The Friends of the San Pablo Library have an ongoing book sale in the lobby of the library that is restocked on a weekly basis. All proceeds benefit library services.

Special Book Sales



We accept books in excellent physical condition by appointment only. Please no magazines, encyclopedias, or textbooks. You may call the library at 510- 374-3998 for further information. Please do NOT leave donations outside the library or put them through the bookdrop.

For additional information, see the library's general information on donations.
