  • Fund half the cost of Sunday hours
  • Sponsor fundraising events: Four Book Sales each year
  • Encourage library support at city, county, state levels
  • Stimulate public awareness of the library
  • Publish a quarterly newsletter
  • Help plan new libraries in San Ramon

Book Store

The San Ramon Library Foundation Bookstore is open!  We have a huge selection of beautiful books for you.  If you have a few hours to spare each week, let us know.  We need volunteers to staff our store.  There are volunteer sheets at the bookstore, or email for more information.

When we are not open, an Honor Cart will be out with books for you to buy.  The prices are marked inside each book and you pay for the books in the slot on the safe that is attached to the cart.

There is something for everyone.  Come take a look and buy a book.  Bookstore proceeds help the SRLF provide activities, programs, books and services for the San Ramon Library.

Thanks for your support.


The San Ramon Library Foundation is accepting donations at the San Ramon Library, 100 Market Street, during library open hours.  We gladly accept gently used books and DVDs, but please no magazines, textbooks, encyclopedias, phonograph records, or VHS tapes.

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