Book lovers of all ages are invited to visit our bookstore in the heart of downtown San Rafael. Friends Books, sponsored by the Friends of the San Rafael Public Library, offers a full range of new and gently-used books, beautifully organized and displayed for your browsing and shopping pleasure. Enter through a rare downtown garden into the sunny and friendly shop, just around the corner from Fourth Street and next door to the parking garage on C Street and 5th Avenue.



Donations of up to 3 boxes of books, CDs, and DVDs may be brought to the bookstore during regular open hours. Please call  (415) 453-1443 to drop off larger amounts. Thank you!
