Book Sales

When the Peninsula Center Library is open so is the Friends book sale area. The Honor System is simple, just place your cash or check into an envelope and place in the slot on the wall.  Malaga Cove Book Sale will be starting back on July 16th and 17th from 10am to 5pm, and will continue on the 3rd weekend of each month. 

We are accepting donations of books and DVDs once a month at the Peninsula Center Library on the dates listed below.

If you have books and DVDs to donate, you can drop them off at the Peninsula Center Library on the last Saturday of the month, from 9 am to 10:30 am (except for holiday weekends: Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas). Please drive up the ramp off Silver Spur into the underground parking area. Place your donations in the trunk of your vehicle so we can maintain proper social distancing; library volunteers will remove them. Thank you for remembering the Peninsula Friends of the Library! To make sure you stay informed if one of these events is canceled, please sign up for email notification: newsletter sign-up
