“A library is a focal point, a sacred place to a community; and its sacredness is its accessibility, its publicness. It’s everybody’s place.”

―Ursula K. Le Guin

Now accepting donations for our 2022 collection

Spine labels

The Black Rock Public Library needs your help making this year's book collection the best one yet. If your spring cleaning has turned up any books or comic books that you think someone would love, put them back into circulation by donating them to BRPL!

Donations are accepted year-round, both on and off the playa. All books will enter permanent circulation with a one-year checkout period.

If you live in the San Francisco Bay area, we can arrange for a donation pickup. Otherwise, we will happily reimburse you for media mail shipping.

We are especially delighted to receive:

  • Classics
  • Comic books
  • Sexy books
  • Weird books
  • Books that you love

For more information, please email us at [email protected]
