Used Book Sales

Books For Friends – NOW OPEN!

Location: Alameda Free Library, Main Branch (1550 Oak Street)
Hours: Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 12-4pm

In mid-March, FAL opened a book sale space called Books for Friends at the Main Library in the old book donation/sorting room near Dewey’s Cafe. Books for Friends is currently open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 12-4pm, but we expect that hours will increase as our volunteer base increases and as COVID allows. Our Book Sale Committee members have a curated selection of used books in excellent condition that we know you will like. Stop in and see what treasures are on our shelves!

We will hold pop-up sales in the Stafford Room of the Main Library (1550 Oak Street) on the following Saturdays:
