July at The Book Place


Our annual Great Mystery Sale is on now! All large-format hardcovers and paperbacks are half price, just $1.00 each!*  So many beautiful prime condition books, and lots of series that are quite popular. Sale runs through July. *Note: excludes Current Releases


Also, July is our nation’s birthday, and we celebrate with 1/2 off History. 


If you’re attending Novato’s 4th of July parade, stop in! We are ALWAYS open during parade hours (roughly 9:30-1:00), so slip inside, cool off,  and see what we’ve got.

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.
