BASICALLY BOOKS IN DIAMOND BAR

Basically BOOKS, the Diamond Bar Friends of the Library’s two non-profit bookstores, are friendly places serving the community as a resource for school, work and pleasure reading at exceptionally low prices.

Thanks to our generous donors, we have hundreds of high quality books and other media for sale. We have a large and interesting selection of foreign language books including Chinese and Korean. Stop by and check it out.

Besides our regular store hours we have monthly buck-a-bag sidewalk sales held on the third Saturday of each month. Visit us on February 21 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for the great bargains you will find at our monthly sidewalk sale.

Manager Peggy Murphy is actively looking for new volunteers to staff both locations at 23447 Golden Springs Road (near the intersection of Golden Springs and Diamond Bar Boulevard) and the bookstore at the Diamond Bar Library, 21800 Copley Drive (across from the AQMD Building).

All proceeds from both Basically BOOKS directly benefit the Diamond Bar Library. Gift certificates are available and make great birthday or special occasion gifts.
