"More than a Store"

We are book finders, who are encouraging at risk youth, bringing purpose to retired people, and giving back to our community.


  • Local giving -- Donate your books here at Books 5150 for the troops. If you know someone serving our country in Iraq or Afghanistan, please provide us with their name and address. We would love to send them a care package. Please contact us if you would like to recieve copies of thank you letters we receieve from the troops. Any book donations we recieve will be sent to the troops. ForTheTroops.org
  • At risk youth -- We provide youth with that critical first job and assist them with getting their education at Los Angeles Mission College in Sylmar. At risk youth become educated productive citizens at Books 5150.
  • Purpose for retired persons -- We utilize the experience and abilities of our senior citizens offering productivity and pride.

Though quirky and a bit unorthodox our goal is to help you find that gotta have book, while supporting our local community.

Find that "gotta have" book!

Our casual layout and large selection lends itself to the hunt. Be prepared to stay awhile, and you are sure to find a a gem.

Please honor our pricing structure.
