The Friends of the Salinas Public Library (FOSPL) welcome the public back to their Friends Corner Bookstore located in the John Steinbeck Library.  Browse a collection of best sellers, mysteries, classics, cookbooks, self-help books and much more.  

The community can help support library programs by shopping at the Friends Corner Bookstore where proceeds from book sales support many of the library's programs, including the Summer Reading Program and the Kinder Boot Camp which helps Pre-K children get ready for their first day of Kindergarten.  FOSPL has also helped fund he Outdoor Learning Spaces at El Gabilan Library with a contribution of $37,000, and provided the cash scholarship to the 2021 Youth Poet Laureate winner.

"We're delighted to be reopening the Friends Corner Bookstore, and look forward to hosting our next big lawn book sale in June," says FOSPL President, Ken Allen.  Store hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. 

FOSPL is always welcoming new members.  Follow them on Facebook or //FOSPL.bookshop [at]" rel="nofollow">email them with questions on becoming a member.
