The Jerry Peterson Bookshop

Interior of Jerry Peterson Bookshop 

The Bookshop of the Rancho Bernardo Library offers readers a large selection of gently read books at very low prices. Opening hours are:  

Monday 10a - 4p
Tuesday 12p - 5:30p
Wednesday 1p - 7p
Thursday 10a - 4p
Friday 10a - 4p
Saturday 10a - 4p
Sunday 1p - 4p
Closed for city holidays.

Each month except January we purchase up to ten current best sellers for our Lending Library. These books are exclusively for our members and can be checked out for a two week period. Go to the Top Stories Page to view the current list.

Go to the Join Page if you would like to take advantage of our library. We need volunteers to help staff the Bookshop during Library hours. Send an email to volunteer or drop by our bookshop at the library.  

In the case of good books, the point is not how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.
