San Rafael Public Library

Friends of the Library

More than 400 individuals and families help support the library each year through their membership in Friends of the San Rafael Public Library. An active group of Friends also participates in fundraising, advocacy, and volunteering.

The Friends main fundraising activity is selling donated books at:

Friends Books
1016 C Street, between 4th Street and 5th Avenue
San Rafael, CA

All members are invited to special preview sales. Volunteers organize book sales, research rare books and sort book donations.

For more information about joining or volunteering, call 485-3104 or 453-1443.

Our Friends have provided great contributions to the community through their support of the Summer Reading Program, art lectures, and other programs. They have purchased books, equipment, and much more over their devoted years of support.
