Friends of the Sebastopol Library


The Friends of the Sebastopol Library is a volunteer nonprofit organization that provides support to the Sebastopol Regional Library. While the Sebastopol Regional Library is a part of the Sonoma County Library system and is tax-supported, there are many items for which there are not enough tax dollars.

The Friends sponsor programs such as Summer Reading, music performances, and holiday events. Funds from the Friends’ book sales, membership dues, and donations enable the Friends to purchase books, equipment, and furnishings for the library.

The Friends contributed approximately a quarter of a million dollars toward the renovation and retrofitting of the Sebastopol Regional Library in 2012.

Interested in joining the Friends? Please get a membership form at the library and return it with your tax-deductible check. Friends volunteer almost daily to sort books and set up and staff book sales. Friends also volunteer time as needed.

Year-Round Book Sales

The Friends coordinate book sales year round, through which the majority of the Friends’ funds are raised.
