Founded in the 1980s by Sharon King, Spare Time Books has been woman owned ever since! We are honored to continue that legacy.
We carry a wide selection of used books, if you are looking for one in particular, give us a call! We can always special order for you as well.
Have books you don't want anymore? We offer store credit for books you bring in! We also frequently donate extra books to local programs and charities, so your books will always find a home!
Carla and Clio became friends over their mutual love for reading and creativity. Over the years, they would joke and dream about one day owning their own bookstore, until finally, it happened! Both were raised in Paso Robles, and are thrilled to breathe new life into this treasure of the community.
We love our customers! Do you have a question? Are you looking for a book that isn't in our store? Drop us a line anytime, and we will get back to you with answers!
