Volunteer at the Store »


Located right inside the beautiful downtown Central Library, the Friends Library Store is the tiniest independent bookstore you haven’t heard of.  Hundreds of fabulous hand selected used books at surprisingly low prices fill our shelves alongside a wonderful selection of greeting cards and literary gifts.  Staffed by wonderful volunteers, our proceeds benefit the Multnomah County Library. 


We have a wide selection of fiction and nonfiction, with some particularly great deals on cookbooks, craft books and recently published fiction.  Don't forget to check out the three carts in the lobby that feature Children’s Books (starting at $1), 50% off books, and the 3 for $5 book special.

Greeting Cards and Local Artwork

Our store also features a thoughtfully curated selection of greeting cards, many of them locally designed and produced.  And for those visiting our fair city, we carry a selection of Portland themed postcards and souvenirs.

Book Bags, Bookmarks, Bookends and More

The Friends Library Store has all the best gifts for library and book lovers alike.  Next time you are downtown, stop in!
