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!

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.
