Friends VP, Gene Roeder, stands next to the Book for Troops display. The Peninsula Friends of the Library sends books, videos, magazines and CDs to troops around the world. Since 2004 we have sent over 76,000 items weighing more than 20 tons to military hospitals, USO facilities, Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force units in 43 countries.

A donation of $15 will send 40 books to our troops. Donations can be made to Peninsula Friends of the Library, Books for Troops and sent to Malaga Cove Library, 2400 Via Campesina, Palos Verdes Estates, CA 90274.

Donations of the various media can be dropped off at any of the three library locations and should be marked Books for Troops to distinguish them from our other donations. The most requested genres are: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mysteries, Westerns and Adventure.
