The Friends Used Book Store

The Friends of the Coronado Public Library operates Second Hand Prose bookstore selling donated books, DVD’s, Blu-ray discs, audio books, rare books, and gift items. Our storefront is located behind the Library on D Avenue, across from the high school and is open daily.  A second book shop location is in the Library lobby with a large selection of paperback fiction and non-fiction for adults, teens, and children, gift items and cards, DVD’s and audiobooks. 

We are currently accepting donations of newer books published within the past five years, and children’s books that are in good condition. We are also accepting donations of rare and exceptional books. If you have any questions about these donation guidelines please contact us at Donations can be brought to Second Hand Prose during operating hours.

All sale proceeds fund Library programs for children, teens and adults.
