The Friends of the Library Bookshop

Located on the lower level of the Frances Morrison Central Library, the Friends of the Library bookshop is the place where withdrawn library materials find a second home. All other SPL branches have pop-up shops that also sell Friends materials.  

Thanks to Our Friends

Many projects and additions to SPL were funded by Friends of the Library, through membership fees and booksales. Our sincerest gratitude for all of their many contributions!
