Book Place will close to have new carpet installed between June 3 and June 7. We will also stop accepting ANY donations after Memorial Day until the store reopens. PLEASE do not leave donations outside the store- we will have no place to put them during the work. Please call before you visit- we will keep the phone message current to let you know whether we've reopened. 415-209-0212.
The Book Place
Our used book shop at 1608 Grant in Novato is a popular destination for book lovers and bargain hunters. The Book Place was selected as the Best Bookstore in Marin in an August Readers' Poll in Patch online newspapers! We are proud of this achievement, and invite you to visit us and see what all the fuss is about.
You'll find books in every category--fiction, nonfiction, cookbooks, children's books, collector's items and much more. You'll also find CDs, videos, and audiobooks. The shop is open seven days a week and has unbeatable prices, with books starting at just a quarter. We're staffed entirely by volunteers, and new members can find volunteer opportunities there, too. Call 415-209-0212 for information.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday: 10-4
Sundays: 12-4 (Bargain Sunday is 12-4, the first Sunday of the month)
The Book Place is operated by the Friends of the Marin County Free Library, a nonprofit volunteer organization. All proceeds are used for special programs, needs, and materials for the Marin County Free Libraries.
Donations are welcome any time during regular business hours. PLEASE review our donation guidelines before bringing your donations. We accept books and media in good/very good condition. Please, no dirty, torn, moldy books- please consider carefully whether your books are in resale condition. Our limited labor and time must be spent on books that will make money for our libraries.
