ABOUT OUR BOOKSTORE
Hardcover Books average $3.00.
Most Paperback Books range from 50¢ to $2.00.
No moldy or damaged items sold here!
We thoroughly clean and prepare everything for sale in our 764 square foot back room staffed with dedicated volunteers.
The majority of the financial support given by Friends of the Camarillo Library to the Camarillo Public Library comes from the sale of used books, DVDs, music CDs and audiobooks that are donated by the generous public.
Friends sell the bulk of its books in the brick-and-mortar store located on the left side of the Camarillo
Library Courtyard next to Giant Steps Cafe.
While the majority of the books in the Bookstore, regardless of subject, are priced from $0.50 to $6.00, you will occasionally come across a special find that is worth more and priced accordingly. The higher priced, in-store books are still priced below the average internet price for books in the same condition.
You will find some Highlighted Specials that come out once a month!

Are you a bargain hunter and want to pay even less than our already extremely affordable prices? Watch for flash sales!
When we find ourselves with overflowing inventory in a certain category, we will offer those books for 50% off already low prices. These sales are spontaneous and last for a limited time. Stop in often to see what might be on sale. Or, better yet, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to be alerted to these impromptu sales.
Want a deal every day?
Try your luck with our book carts.
Inventory is added almost every day to our double-sided carts, which are located just outside the entry door in the courtyard. Books on the red cart (grownups) are reduced, often by 50%, for quick sale. We spotlight books on the blue cart (children). Some are reduced, often by 50%, for quick sale. They are usually culled after one week. Look for notices and specials on our chalkboard sign positioned near the closeout carts.
Small, hand-carried Donations of books and materials can be brought to the Bookstore’s front customer service counter during Bookstore hours (10 am – 4 pm Tuesday through Saturday).
