Donate to the Friends of the Fresno County Public Library
NEW BOOKSTORE HOURS
The Friends Book Shop is open Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 9 am to 12 noon. The shop will be closed Saturday, December 24 and Saturday, December 31 for the holidays.
While there won't be a big sale at Sierra Vista Mall in 2022, make sure to check the "News & Events" tab for upcoming branch sales!
Due to the Covid-19 safety measures still in place, we ask that you follow these steps for donating books.
NOTE: We cannot accept Encyclopedias, Magazines, or Text Books.
- Some libraries are accepting donations; some are not. Feel free to call your local branch to see if they are accepting at this time. If your branch is not accepting, and you are not able to hold on to the books, follow the next steps.
- If you wish to drop off a box of books, you may do so behind our book store at the Sunnyside Branch (Kings Canyon & Clovis). Leave the boxes on the concrete pad at the back door of the library, not in front of the library. Please call 559-492-6657 and leave a message to let us know that there are books to be taken inside by our book store staff.
- If you have multiple boxes of books, please fill out this form and we will contact you as soon as we can to make arrangements.

About The Friends
The Friends of the Fresno County Public Library was formed in 1980 by a group of concerned citizens to serve as a link between the Library and the community and to raise money for special projects.
In the 1990s, the Friends of the Library supported the passage of Measure B, a 1/8 cent sales tax for the purpose of Library operations. Since the passage of Measure B in 1998 and again in 2014, library usage has soared—circulation has doubled and participation in library programs for all ages has increased dramatically.
The Friends of the Library is a 501 (c)(3), 509 (a)(1) and 170 (b)(1)(A)(6). Your membership and donations are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by state and federal law.
