Save the Friends’ Readers Bookstore at Fort Mason
We, the customers and volunteers of the Friends’ Readers Bookstore at Fort Mason, propose that the non-profit, used bookstore be saved from permanent closure, as it’s an invaluable, irreplaceable resource to citizens of the Bay Area and the local literary community, as well as a popular destination for readers, book & record dealers, tourists, collectors, art lovers, neighboring businesses, antique sellers, students and children.
All the used books for sale are donated by the public and it has always made a profit, having very few staff and many volunteers. All the profits benefit the San Francisco Public Library, making it doubly beneficial to the Bay Area community! It’s an invaluable resource and asset to support the SFPL that should be saved from permanent closure.
