Friends of the Santa Ana Public Library (FOSAPL)

The Friends of the Santa Ana Public Library Bookstore will be closed May 10 - June 12, 2023. Service will resume on Wednesday, June 14, 2023.

The Friends are volunteers that work in support of the Santa Ana Public Library. We hold book sales and other events to help raise funds. We take pride in the work we do in helping to fund the projects and equipment needed by the library that cannot be funded through the City budget.

Visit the Basement Book Store

  • Mondays from 12:00 pm-2:00 pm
  • Wednesdays from 4:00 pm-7:00 pm.

Bag sales

Check out upcoming sales at the Friends of the Library.

Every third Wednesdays of odd months (July, September and November), buy a grocery bag from us for $5.00 and fill it with items you would like. Buy as many bags as you want with everything from media, books, and more are available!

Every third Wednesdays of even months (June, August, October and December), come see what fabulous items we have for sale. There will be something different every time!

How to support the library

Support the library through donations, volunteering opportunities, and much more! All profits go to library programs.

We need volunteers to shelve books, sort books, pack books, and work the cash register during sale times.

We accept donations of material in very good condition. Items sold in used book sales generate funds for the Library
