The Book Place - 1608 Grant Avenue, Novato

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.

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.

This month, November, we focus on Mysteries and Foreign Language. Hardcover Mysteries (except those in the new section) are 50% off regular price. That makes them a mere 50 cents apiece- how’s THAT for an inexpensive form of entertainment? Foreign Language items, both in our Foreign Language section or in the Children’s room, are 50% off for the month.
