Our major book sale normally takes place each year in early November.*  As we have limited storage space for books at the library, there may be times during the year that we cannot accept book donations. Check this page for status before you bring donations to us. If we are not accepting donations, please save them until closer to our sale if you can!

For this year's Coastside Gives Day of Giving, Friends of the Half Moon Bay Library has set a goal of raising $10,000 to support the enhancement of the Children's Garden at the Half Moon Bay Library.

 

This space has been beloved since the opening of the new library in 2018. Due to the pandemic, outdoor gathering spaces have seen increased demand. Funds raised through this campaign will be used to provide additional shading and furniture to ensure that this space continues to provide a safe, welcoming place to gather throughout the year.
