Getting books inside.
Anything you buy from the lists below go directly into the San Quentin Library collection.

You can buy books from our local independent bookstore partner:

Copperfield's Bookstore.

Or use our Amazon Wish List for books we can't get locally; many of these are at discounted prices.

The librarians we work with at San Quentin update these lists regularly to reflect current needs, requested items, and highly sought after titles.
