Friends of the Oakland Public Library operates The Bookmark Bookstore in the historic downtown of Oakland, CA. We grant all proceeds from The Bookmark to the Oakland Public Library for a variety of special programs and activities. You can read more about our grants and organization at fopl.org.
There are so many ways to shop with us!

- Purchase our special books at our
eBay store: https://www.ebay.com/str/thebookmarkbookstore and our
Amazon store: https://www.amazon.com/shops/the_bookmark_bookstore (although Amazon requires you to search a bit more to actually find our books!)

Public donations of over 70,000 books and media annually comprise all of our inventory. As a result, we have a very eclectic, constantly changing selection of good-quality books at very reasonable prices, as well as CDs, LPs, DVDs, sheet music and jigsaw puzzles.
