Library Shop

We are a partnership between the San Diego Public Library Foundation and the Friends of the Library. All proceeds benefit the San Diego Public Library system. We have a carefully curated selection of books, jewelry, children’s merchandise, gifts and art. We support local vendors and artisans whenever possible. Come down and check us out! We are located on the ground floor of the San Diego Central Library @ Joan Λ Irwin Jacobs Common, near the entrance.

Acclaimed New York Times bestselling young adult author Sarah Dessen will be at the Central Library Wednesday, May 6 to discuss and sign her newest release, “Saint Anything.” Books will be available for purchase from the Library Shop and priority will be given in the signing line for customers who purchase the book from the Library Shop. Dessen’s backlist titles will also be available for sale.

Yoga + Flowers- Sunday, May 10, 11 am-3 pm
Our popular morning yoga class returns, taught by Hale Holistic instructors. Held outside on the library’s garden patio before the library opens, this is a beautiful, peaceful way to start your day. Free and open to all levels of yoga; just bring your mat. Following the class, we’ll be hosting a flower pop-up shop featuring Native Poppy florist. Last time Natalie was here was on Valentine’s Day when her gorgeous bouquets sold out! Don’t miss this chance to buy a pretty bunch of flowers for yourself or the mother in your life.
