There are many ways to donate
Most of our funds are raised through the sale of donated books. When you clean out your bookshelves, consider donating your gently used books to the Friends of the Library for our Bookshop and Monthly book sales.
Drop off your books in the underground parking lot of the San Carlos Library. There you’ll see a cage with a drop off spot for the Friends, and pick up a donation receipt.
Please consider making a donation to the Friends of the Library in the form of a direct cash donation. You can make a donation at anytime by leaving a check or cash at the Library Circulation Desk or mail to us. We appreciate gifts of any amount.
