The Friends of the Pleasanton Library is a non-profit, grassroots organization dedicated to promoting our library as an essential institution of society and supporting its mission and vision.
We are committed to enhancing programs, services, and facilities at the library in Pleasanton, California. We raise money through memberships, donations, and book sales. These funds are used to provide programs and activities and to purchase materials and furnishings for which there are no provisions in the library budget.
Our huge biannual book sale is held at the Pleasanton Library at 400 Old Bernal Avenue.
Extended hours mean lots of time to shop for mystery, home and garden, cookbooks, textbooks, classics, sports, non-fiction, self-help books, romance, science fiction, and children’s books. The sale includes DVDs, CDs, maps, and other miscellaneous items.
Buyers will find a large selection of popular recent novels in like-new condition and thousands of books for kids.
Proceeds support the library and fund special projects requested by staff and patrons. The Spring 2019 Book and Media Sale generated almost $15,000!
