The Humboldt County Library exists because the citizens of Humboldt value education, culture, and community.  The library is sustained on a daily basis by taxpayers, volunteers, donors and library patrons.  We appreciate your support.

Buy Books

Buy online or in person from the Friends of the Library Serendipity Store on the second floor of the Eureka Main Library.  The bookstore has a large selection of new and vintage books, magazines, and videos, with inventory added daily.  Prices are very affordable, and the money supports the Friends in their projects to benefit the Library.
