Friends Book Fair (10:00 AM-3:00 PM)

Each spring and fall, the Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries holds a huge book sale at the Civic Auditorium in downtown Santa Cruz. The books and media sold are the crème de la crème of book donations, from fiction to children’s books, audio tapes to CD’s (sorry, no vinyl). Our non-fiction covers subjects from A-Z: cookbooks, crafts, foreign languages and gardening, health & well-being, poetry, religion & spirituality, travel, reference, sports & games, and humor! We also have an impressive selection of vintage books, including some real treasures of antiquity. Following Friday evening's Members Only Preview Night, on Saturday morning, doors open to the public. Books will be priced at $2.00 per pound until Saturday afternoon when they are repriced at $5 per grocery bag. We love to see reusable tote bags but we do provide paper grocery bags.
