Freinds of Capitola Branch Library bookstoreBooksales:

The Capitola Friends holds book sales (including CD’s, DVD’s) the first Saturday of each month and also adds a few extra sales when we have enough inventory and volunteers to run the store. All genres, most books from $1 – $2!

Where:  We have a storefront at the Capitola Mall by the main entrance next to Starbucks.

How you can support the book sales:

  • Come and shop and buy!
  • Donate books, CDs DVDs or other library materials – contact Karen@sploids.com for pickup
  • Attend a Friends meeting or send an email (CapitolaFriendsChapter@fscpl.org) to find out what you can do to volunteer to help out with the booksale.

Our Capitola Branch Friends Chapter Goals:

Until our new branch library opens, we will focus on supporting the construction of
our new branch via advocacy and fundraising.​​

When our new Branch opens, Capitola Friends will continue with our ongoing
mission:

  • Fundraising to provide financial assistance for needs not covered in Capitola Library operational or capital budgets;
  • Advocating for the Capitola Branch Library;
  • Supporting innovative and excellent Capitola Library programs and services;
  • Providing opportunities for volunteer service at the Capitola Branch Library.
