Thank-you gifts and the
Friends’ Book Program
Most of the benefits you receive as a Friends’ donor are the same, with a few changes related to the closed bookstores and the canceled Big Book Sale. You will still receive the 10% discount at independent books cores; a Libraries for All mask; the SFPL’ s monthly At the Library publication delivered to your door and by email; Friends’ monthly eNewsletters; and invitations to special Library and Friends’ virtual events.
Book Program: The Book Donation Center has reopened to accept donations by appointment only. Book your appointment today at FriendsSFPL.org/DonateBooks. Used books are on sale through our online stores FriendsSFPL.org/Shop. We are prioritizing health and safety through the winter and look forward to the possibility of hosting community book sales and searching for a new location for the Friends Bookstore. We appreciate your patience during this time of unexpected changes.
Because we heard from so many of you requesting the option of making your membership donation on a recurring monthly basis, we are proud to present the Friends Forever Membership.
You can select a monthly giving level that fits your budget and let Friends take care of the rest. Whatever level you select, you are immediately entitled to a comprehensive portfolio of popular benefits: tickets to the annual Member Preview of our Big Book Sale, discounts in our Bookstores, At the Library publication, member events, and more.
As a Friends Forever Member, you can take great pride knowing your ongoing generosity helps keep our award-winning San Francisco Public Library strong.
Alternatively, you may still also make your membership on a one-time annual basis. Either way, all Members are entitled to a comprehensive portfolio of valuable Member benefits described below.
