Whether you’re an avid reader, a collector of rare finds, or just looking for some great bargains, our BIG BOOK SALES have something for everyone! Your purchases not only provide you with affordable reading material, but also contribute directly to the enrichment of our community through enriched library programs, resources, and services.

All of the books and other merchandise offered for sale at our BIG BOOK SALES are donated and all of the labor is graciously provided by Friends Board members and a team of dedicated volunteers, so 100% of the proceeds from our BIG BOOK SALES goes to the Friends of Westwood Library

The Friends is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization, which invests these funds right back into the Westwood Branch Library to provide one of the best branch libraries anywhere. This includes an enriched book collection, the extensive “Hot Off the Press” collection of brand new Best Sellers, E-books, the Criterion Collection of Classic and Contemporary movie DVDs, our monthly free Concert Series @ Westwood Library, other monthly free programs, our Cybernaut computer aide, and so much more.

The funds we raise at our BIG BOOK SALES to enable enriching programs for children, young adults and adult. We also sponsor our highly popular monthly free Concert Series @ Westwood Library, making the Westwood Library the only library out of the 72 branch libraries of the Los Angeles Public Library System with a monthly free concert series.

Thank you for your continued support for the Friends of Westwood Library! Together we can make our local Westwood Library an even better place for learning, inspiration, and community.
