Friends Book Store

  • Friends Book Store

The Friends' used book store is open Monday through Friday 10 am - 12 noon and the first Saturday of each month 10 am - 4 pm at St. Mary's by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, 146 12th St. in Pacific Grove


If your bookshelves are looking empty, or your “must read” list growing short - never fear! You will find wonderful buys in books, puzzles, CDs and more at the Friends Store.

All proceeds benefit the Library’s community of readers and learners. If you’re a member of the Friends, you get a nice discount. And yes, we’re happy to have you become a member at the store!
