Oakland’s Fundraising Bookstore for Oakland’s Public Libraries

Each year The Bookmark receives +10,000 donated books and related items,
mostly from private libraries and East Bay estates. Book-lovers find uncommon,
delightful and engaging titles not found in any typical book store.
We get new stock daily!

pocketbooks, gently used CDs, DVDs and LPs.
