Friends of the Library of Los Altos
and Community

In-Library Sales

The Friends' "ongoing sale shelves" in the main library and in the Woodland branch library are the best bookstores in town. They contain over 800 current hardcover books and paperbacks in like-new condition, at unbeatable prices starting at $1.00.

The selections are always changing (daily in the main library), so stop by regularly to buy great books for yourself and as gifts. Also make sure to visit the shelves before a business trip or vacation. The bargain-priced recent paperbacks make great traveling companions--read them on a plane or in a hotel, and leave them at your destination for others to enjoy.

In the main library, the ongoing sale shelves are against the wall opposite the check-out facilities, and at the Woodland branch the shelves are under the window to the far left of the check-out desk. Check here for directions to the two library branches.

And for even better bargains, the Friends' sale book cart in the main library lobby contains a collection of less current paperbacks in good condition for $0.25 each, also refreshed daily; re-read some old favorites or find some books you missed.
