October at the Book Place

With October’s arrival, we feel like the world speeds up even more through the re-

maining months. It’s NOT too early to consider gift-buying, and we remind you that we get some truly special books in our donations, along with virtually new popular titles in excellent condition. Come on by and spend some quality time browsing our 60+ categories. 


If Science Fiction/Fantasy is your thing, we’ve got it half price through October. Sale prices range from 50¢ (paperback) to $2.00 (hardcover). Find some new (to you) authors, or start a new series. 

We’re also featuring our Sociology section at half price, encompassing gender or racial issues, LGBTQ, and more. Timely and important reading. 


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.

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.
