Because a library is only as great as the community that supports it.


The Torrance Library is a cultural, educational and recreational asset to the community. Tax revenues provide only the basics. Friends ensure that our library has the resources it needs by raising funds to supplement programs and services.


We hope you will join us by becoming a member, volunteering, making a donation, and coming to our book sales.

Due to COVID-19 regular indoor   book sales are on hold. 

Visit our sale of fiction, children's and foreign language prebagged books.


Saturday October 30th  10am-2pm

We are accepting donations. Please see the Book Donation page for details. 


  Lobby & Internet sales are open.
