The Claremont Forum

The Claremont Forum has sponsored wellness, education, and art programs in the community since 1985. We sponsor the Sunday Farmers & Artisans Market in the Claremont Village, the nationwide Prison Library Project, as well as the bookshop and art gallery in the Claremont Packing House.

Claremont's only independent used bookstore! We sell books at great prices, artwork by local artists, and host a variety of community events.

California Certified Farmers Market every Sunday (rain or shine) from 8 AM to 1 PM in the Claremont Village.

We are one of the nation's largest books-to-prisoners organizations. We send thousands of books and educational materials to inmates each month, free of charge.

We are always looking for book donations as well as financial support for the Prison Library Project. Follow the link to learn more and discover volunteer opportunities.
