Friends of WFPL Bookstores!

Looking for a great cookbook? Maybe love or war stories are more your speed. No matter what it is, it could be waiting for you on the shelves at one of our Friends bookstores. Prices range from just .25 to a few dollars. Join the Friends and find out about special sales and savings.

Friends of the Library bookstores can be found at the following library branch locations. Please click the branch name to view current bookstore hours.


Go GREEN… Recycle!

The Friends accept donations of books, CDs, DVDs, and magazines year-round.  Small donations (one bag or less) may be dropped off at any WFPL location.

Large donations should be made at the Uncle Bob’s Self Storage located at 5060 North Palafox Street, Pensacola, FL 32505. We are in the second storage building on Murphy Street every Thursday from 9:00-11:45am. You must call before making a donation so someone can meet you outside the unit to get your books. Please call 450-2469 to make arrangements for large donations.

In the Southwest Branch Library area, for large donations quantities contact the Friends of the Southwest Branch Library by contacting the branch 850-453-7780, the FSWB President at 850-696-9609 or Cathy Ingram by email



The Friends need volunteers to help staff bookstores, sort and price books, help at our spring and fall book sales, and work at other library fundraising events.

Sign up to volunteer, ask questions, or schedule a donation drop off by calling Linda Williams at 850.494.1326 or by email us at
