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.

Starting April 20, 2021, store hours will be: Tuesdays: 12 - 4 pm, Thursdays: 12-4 pm, and Saturdays: 10-4 pm.

Up to six people are allowed in the store at once. All must wear masks.

We welcome donations of up to four bags or boxes of books,CDs or DVDs during store hours. If you have a larger donation, please contact Gail: gjyoungblood@gmail.com to make arrangements.

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: friendscommunitybookstore@gmail.com. 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.
