  The Library Shop is a non-profit book & gift store located in the courtyard of the Downtown Central Library sponsored by the FSDPL and the SDP Library  Foundation. 

As the plans for Downtown Central Library were being developed, space was set aside for a Library Gift/Book Shop to be located on site. It features a wide selection of well-curated books, gifts, cards, jewelry, and more. Proceeds support all 36 San Diego Public Libraries.  Life-members of the Friends of the Library receive 10% off all purchases. The Library Shop also sponsors monthly special events for youth and adults. To find out more about the Library Shop, their hours of operation, monthly special events, speakers, books and materials, go to  Library Shop  or call the Library Shop at 619-236-5802.
