The elegant BOOKtique bookstore, located in the Main Library Lobby, is sponsored and operated by the Friends. The BOOKtique sells high-quality donated books and other items at very reasonable prices. Books, which are in "like new" condition, are for sale at bargain prices. Videos, audio books, children's books, fiction, nonfiction, biographies, music CDs, cookbooks, and paperbacks galore are also available at great prices. Volunteers regularly restock the Booktique shelves so be sure to stop by on a periodic basis to find literary treasures! These books have been hand-selected as the best and the brightest of all donations. Proceeds from the funds raised via the BOOKtique will be used to support the San Leandro Public Library materials fund, library programming, the Summer Reading Program, and cultural and educational events.
