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.
