Friends' Community Bookstore

In late 2017, we opened our bookstore: Friends' Community Bookstore located at 330 Reservation Road., across from the Ramada Inn.

At this store, we accept donations of used books, CDs, and DVDs, and we sell the best of these donated materials to the public.
The store is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 10 am - 4 pm. Come visit and walk though four rooms of inventory, all beautifully organized.

The store is closed until we get more comfortable with covid protocols, but you can still shop there using a personal shoppe. Contact us at to communicate about shopping.

Now Open: Friends Community Bookstore
We Welcome Volunteers!

We receive hundreds of donated books each month. We sell them at our store (Friends’ Community Bookstore, 330 Reservation Road, Suite F, Marina, CA 93933), at our bi-monthly book sales at the library, and we sell them on Amazon. Could you help us?

We will show you how to list books on Amazon. We do our book scanning and listing once or twice a week at the store. Help us, and you will get first pick of all our inventory while you learn the basics of being a book dealer!

We also need volunteers to pick up our bi-monthly book sales books after we have picked what we want for the store and Amazon. There are many books of beauty and value after this process, but we don't have space to keep everything. We always need a few people willing to pick up some boxes of books and then do as they wish - take some home, donate to organizations they care about, or take to Goodwill.

if you want to volunteer, email us at: All volunteer work is done by appointment.

If you enjoy helping the public find great books, come help us at our bi-monthly book sales, click on our Book Sales page for details.

High School and College Students: Helping The Friends of the Marina Library is a fun easy way to earn Community Service Hours. We treasure our student volunteers! Text 831-682-8016 or email to make arrangements. We welcome all kinds of help at our library book sales, at the store, and at events we sponsor at the library.
