The Bay Area Free Book Exchange, Where all the Books are Free

Imagine going into a bookstore, grabbing a handful of books and then walking out without paying. At most places this practice would get you a shoplifting charge, but at the Bay Area Free Book Exchange in El Cerrito, taking books is encouraged—because everything there is free.

Open only on weekends, the Book Exchange regularly accepts book donations that are then offered to the public free of charge. It’s kind of like a library, only you don’t have to return anything. Listen to the podcast below to learn more about the little book “store” on San Pablo Avenue.

You can visit the Book Exchange at 10520 San Pablo Ave., in El Cerrito; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.

Songs: “Ouverture,” Evan LE NY, and “Keep Walking,” Lonah.
