Thank you for celebrating our 50th Anniversary Big Book Sale with us!
Our 50th Anniversary Big Book Sale was a huge success! We surpassed our goal by $44,773 raising just over $244,733 dollars. With no item priced higher than $3, that's a lot of books sold!
Thank you for shopping at, volunteering at, celebrating and supporting our Golden Anniversary. The sale brought in about $45,000 MORE than last year, proving that our city loves to read and continues to support our public libraries.
Held at Fort Mason Center’s Festival Pavilion, our Annual Big Book Sale features over 500,000 books, DVDs, CDs, books on tape, vinyl and other forms of media in over 100 categories.
EVERYTHING is $3 or less, with a 3-2-1 scale: $3-hard cover books; $2-paperback books; $1-DVDs, CDs, books on tape, vinyl and other forms of media. All items remaining on Sunday are $1.
All proceeds benefit the San Francisco Public Library’s education programs that promote literacy for children, teens and adults.
