Because of the years-long library shutdown and inability to hold regular book sales in the wake of the pandemic, our storage space is at a premiumn, so we can only accept up to two (2) boxes or three (3) bags of donated materials, effective May 2021.  Please see the PDF flyer for details on what materials the Friends currently accept.

Please visit us in our expanded bookstore if and when the neverending COVID-19 lockdown is lifted by the County of Santa Clara Public Health Department and the library is fully reopened.

Until the library is fully reopened, check out additional ways you can access resources electronically.

A discount of 10% on books for class use is available in-store to teachers.
