The 54TH ANNUAL BIG BOOK SALE, the largest book sale on the West Coast, returns to Fort Mason, Festival Pavilion October 31 through November 4, with a Halloween twist. This year’s SALE will feature 500,000 used books and media. It will also be a fun and a safe trick-or-treating spot for Bay Area families—Friends’ volunteers will provide treats for costume-clad kids on Wednesday and Thursday.
Tables featuring seventy of the most popular subject categories will be fully stocked with everything from art and architecture, to photography and children’s books. This is a five-day event with over 500,000 books and media on sale all priced from $2-4. On the last day of the sale, Sunday, November 4, everything will be marked down to $1.

All money raised goes towards Friends and its mission to support the San Francisco Public Library. The goals of Friends’ Community Book Program, which produces the Big Book Sale, are:
  • To increase community access to low-cost books and media
  • To provide books to underserved low-income children and families through its network of hospitals, youth centers, women’s shelters, school libraries, and classrooms
  • To redirect more than one million items (525 tons of books) out of landfills and recycling plants each year and into higher and better uses
  • And to Support the library
