IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Bookstore Is Temporarily Closed
On March 13, 2020, the Camarillo City Council voted to close the Camarillo Library, the Friends Bookstore, and Giant Steps Café (we all occupy the same City-owned building) effective Saturday, March 14. The closure is due to the COVID-19 coronavirus. We will remain closed to the public until the health crisis passes or until the City Council decides otherwise.
All tours are cancelled for the balance of the year. A new Tours itinerary will be made up for next year as soon as tours can resume.
We are unable to accept book donations until we reopen. Any books left at the Bookstore will regretfully be recycled.
The Blind Date with a Book drawing is postponed until two weeks after we reopen.
Please continue to return to our website at for updated information. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
