Donate your books and media to Friends! Each year we receive nearly a million donated books, which we in turn resell to the public through our Friends Bookstores and book sales. Your donation is tax-deductible and helps to provide critical support to the San Francisco Public Library and Friends’ community programs.
The best way to recycle books and media is to put them to use in other ways. As the second largest used book seller in the city of San Francisco, we make sure your donations find new life in other peoples' homes.
The Community Book Program (CBP) is a green reuse program diverting 550 tons of books from landfill every year to higher and better uses in the community.
Donations To the Community
We also give books and media away to worthy community organizations.
