Friends of the Long Beach Public Library

About Us
Established in 1962, the Friends of the Long Beach Public Library is a non-profit 501c3 organization. Our first goal is to preserve the freedom of the library and prevent censorship. We also advocate for a strong public library system. We provide materials, support summer reading programs, provide cultural and literary events for the community, fund training for library staff, and keep abreast of current issues affecting the library.

Bookstore & Silent Auction
Support us by shopping at the
Friends of the Library Bookstore or participating in our silent auction

Thinking of reducing your collection of Coffee Table Books on the arts, gardening, planes, trains, history, military, travel and anything great? Think of donating to the Friends of the Long Beach Public Library. The Friends’ Bookstore at Main Library successfully auctions gently used books every month and can always use more.  Proceeds from the auctions and bookstore are used to purchase new books for the library.  Contact Friend Barbara Hubbs at (562) 425-1185 for more information.
