Founded in 1958, Friends of the Manhattan Beach Library is a group of volunteers working to raise funds for the support and enrichment of the Manhattan Beach Public Library within the structure of a non-profit organization.

The new Manhattan Beach Library reopened in May 1, 2015 and is as beautiful as expected.

Opening day at the new Manhattan Beach Public Library!



Shop for great deals in our ongoing book sale area in the new library!

Friends of the Manhattan Beach Library now has its own section in the new library! Be sure to swing by the ongoing book sale area located by the landing of the steps on the first floor adjacent to the elevator. Books are replenished on a regular basis so check back often.
