"Grand Opening" of our New Book Sale Location

We're holding two book sales this Saturday from 11 am to 4 pm.  We have tens of thousands of books are at our huge new well-lit book room, located at the Cubberley Community Center at 4000 Middlefield Road in south Palo Alto, between Charleston Road and San Antonio Road.

Once you're at Cubberley, you'll find our book room at the end of the north access road, adjacent to the Charleston Shopping Center.  We recommend that you not use the main Cubberley lot, because it's farther away.  We'll have signs out to guide you and to help you with parking.

The Cubberley book sale room is near the tennis courts

Our bargain books will be sold at our Terman site at 661 Arastradero Road in Palo Alto during the same hours.
