Book Sales

The Friends’ Alcove at the library is filled with books for all ages and interests,
and is refreshed weekly. Paperbacks start at $1.00, hardbacks at $2. Children’s hardbacks start at $1 and paperbacks at $.50.  Books are priced as marked.

Please pay using our little blue donation box. We use these funds to support and expand the programs and services of the Portola Valley Library.

Book Donations

We appreciate your donations and purchases, which enable us to support Library programs. We welcome gently read books of fiction and nonfiction, children’s books for all ages through young adult, cookbooks, and travel books written no more than five years old.

We can no longer accept CDs or DVDs. We must also decline any torn or moldy books, textbooks, manuals, encyclopedias, dictionaries, and books in foreign languages.

Please bring all donations to the librarian at the main desk during library hours. Do not leave donations outside library. Due to lack of storage, we cannot accept more than one box per donation.

Thank you for supporting your local library and visiting the Friends’ Alcove!
