MARCH 13 UPDATE: Out of an abundance of caution, Friends of the San Francisco Library Bookstores, Donation Center, and Online Sales are closed March 13 through March 15, 2020. An update will be forthcoming on Monday, March 16.
Operated by the nonprofit Friends of the San Francisco Public Library, Readers features used and vintage books, records, posters and more. The bookstore also hosts lectures, events, and author signings throughout the year. Goody Café is next to Readers Bookstore and offers a casual, welcoming atmosphere to enjoy a cup of coffee while perusing a purchase from Readers Bookstore. Proceeds from the store and their frequent sales including the annual Big Book Sale in the Festival Pavilion support programs in San Francisco branch libraries.
