Donating? Please phone ahead to check if we have room for your donations before bringing your books/materials to the Book Place. 415-209-0212. Our room gets full very quickly, and we often have to refuse donations temporarily. Please read our Donation Guidelines for further direction.
We are requesting that donors NOT bring in any hardcover Mysteries at this time, unless they are very recent (2016-2017). After we catch up, we'll again be taking them. Thanks for your understanding.
During our annual holiday event, we'll feature different gift-worthy categories designed for that person on your list (or maybe for YOURSELF). Beginning the day after Thanksgiving, we'll have 3-day weekend specials (Fri-Sun), and to help you in your planning, we're listing them all here!
- November 24-26 : Fiction $2 each, and $2 off the sticker price on our newer Fiction section
- December 1-3: Cookbooks, 1/2 off, and $2 off Individually-Priced Cookbooks
- December 8-10: 50% off all Children's books
- December 15-17: 50% off History and Biographies
- Dec 22-23 (closed Sunday Dec 24): All DVD and CDs 75c
Remember, all your purchases benefit our county libraries, so shop often!
The Book Place - 1608 Grant Avenue, Novato
You'll find books in every category--fiction, nonfiction, cookbooks, children's books, collector's items and much more. You'll also find CDs, videos, and audiobooks. The shop is open seven days a week and has unbeatable prices, with books starting at just a quarter. We're staffed entirely by volunteers, and new members can find volunteer opportunities there, too. Call 415-209-0212 for information.
The Book Place is operated by the Friends of the Marin County Free Library, a nonprofit volunteer organization. All proceeds are used for special programs, needs, and materials for the Marin County Free Libraries.
Donations are welcome any time during regular business hours. PLEASE review our donation guidelines before bringing your donations. We accept books and media in good/very good condition. Please, no dirty, torn, moldy books- please consider carefully whether your books are in resale condition. Our limited labor and time must be spent on books that will make money for our libraries.
