About FWCL

The Friends of the Walnut Creek Library is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to supporting and improving library services in Walnut Creek. The Friends of the Walnut Creek Library are the advocacy group for continued and expanded support of our local library, which is a core institution of our City.


Our Purpose

The Friends of the Walnut Creek Library is a community-based membership organization that supports library collections, services and programs, as well as extended library hours.


Our Goals

Maintain a bookstore that serves our community

Develop membership to build a strong base of support

Forge partnerships with community groups and agencies

Cultivate new leadership and active participation


Our Activities

We are best known for our Friends Bookstore. We sell gently used books at very reasonable prices.


Volunteer Opportunites

Many of our members volunteer regularly, especially to operate the Friends Bookstore—either by sorting donated books or by helping with sales, both in the store at the library or online. We also welcome volunteers to represent our group at community activities or to assist with publicity and Friends programs.
