Friends of the Library


The Friends of the Anacortes Library supports the Anacortes Public Library by augmenting book purchases and children’s and adult programs - including Story Times, STEAM Kits, Fantasy Day, Summer Reading and more! 

We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit. The funds we raise through purchases at the FriendShop or the donation of gently used books, as well as through gifts and grants, directly benefit everyone who uses our wonderful library.


If you would like to find out more about our work and how you can get involved volunteering, or to make a donation, please visit our website:

The FriendShop

Located in the foyer of the Anacortes Public Library, the Anacortes Library FriendShop is an inviting and relaxed used-book store near downtown Anacortes. Here you can find a wide range of low priced, previously owned books and DVDs for yourself or a special someone.

The shop is stocked by donations and Library pruning, and is staffed by Friends of the Library volunteers.

All proceeds from the FriendShop are earmarked for the purchase of books, children's programs, and other library related items.

Current FriendShop Hours:

Monday, Tuesday, Friday, & Saturday 11am - 3pm.
