We've been using this place for more than 15 years. Sometimes you don't find anything good, other times you find books you've wanted, and never expected to find there. They also appreciate it if you give them advice on categorizing a book for them, as they are not conversant with everything. We buy books, read them, and if they aren't... More

This Friends of he Camarillo Library Bookstore is located in the same building as the Camarillo Library. The store has large selection of used books for adults and children. The perfect place to buy used books. There is a coffee shop in the same building.

This is a must visit when visiting the library! The prices are unbelievable!! I bought Harry Potter # 6 & 7 in hardcover for $2 each! They would have cost $65 in a bookstore! Plan on being there a while in order to search for literary treasures!

It's the first place I go when I'm looking for a book. Can't beat the prices and the volunteers are very friendly.

This is a hidden GEM of this community. Well organized stacks of books donated by a very literate community. Current best sellers to diamond find reference books. A current hard bound will set you back $2.00. The shelves are continually renewed as the regular customers return the books they have purchased after they have read the books. Also paperbacks, audio... More

A library of gently used books is a nice place to visit. I like mystery and there is always a good supply. The Volunteers who run the shop are very helpful. The books are priced fairly and if you don't find what you want you are just steps away from the front entrance of the library. You also may want... More

Got to be the most expensive impressive library next to the one in DC. We went in just to print a copy and had to tour the whole thing. Done in Spanish style architecture it was beautiful. I thought I was walking into an exclusive club. I will visit this library on my next trip
