“Super library and over-the-top "Friends of the Library" bookstore”

San Clemente Public Library
Ranked #11 of 22 things to do in San Clemente
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 February 2018

While out on a long walk all over San Clemente, we happened upon this delightful historic building in the city hall complex (near the village area of San Clemente) and spent awhile in the bookstore part of the library. Over our travels, we've stopped in several of the library bookstores which we find excellent places to pick up great reads for a fraction of the price. This location was absolutely exceptional.

The library dedicated a great big room to this endeavor and all the books are easy to browse. The childrens' book section is probably the best we've run across and is popular with the community (lots of young readers shopping there). We left with a huge load of books for the young reader in our extended family.

What a wonderful group of staff people running this library bookstore! So polite, helpful, and eager to tell you about the programs they fund with the donations from book sales. This was a pleasant opportunity to engage with locals in this community and do some good.
