January at the Book Place

New year, and a fresh start on your reading. How about filling your long, dark nights or rainy afternoons with a BIG book? We’ve gathered a bunch in our front window that might entice you to step out there and tackle one of them. They’re all 500 pages plus! We’ve gathered books from all over the store and many categories, including Literature, History, Biography, and more.

If it’s Science Fiction or Fantasy you’re into, or wanting to try, we’ve got our Sci-Fi/Fantasy section reduced to half price. There are many classics, or maybe a new series to take on. Come by and check it out.

We take Requests - send us an email, we’ll look for the book to save time, or, if it’s a book we don’t have in stock, get on our waitlist, and we’ll let you know when it comes in.

Donation Info

We are always in need of gently-used materials to keep our selection fresh. We are in particular need of the non-Fiction categories: History, Biography, Military, Science, etc. However, we ask that you check the Donations Guidelines before packing your donation, as many categories have limits (such as, nothing published more than 5 years ago). We accept donations on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 10am-3pm, at our large rollup door behind the store. Pull into the parking lot and look for us, where we’ll quickly screen your donation and provide a receipt if you like. If you are donating more than 2-3 bags/boxes, please phone ahead (415-209-0212) to check if we have room to take your donation, or if you have questions about anything you wish to donate. Thanks in advance!

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.
