Makara Center for the Arts is a nonprofit lending library & art center in Santa Ana, California. Our specialized book collection is free to Santa Ana residents. Since opening our doors in May 2017, Makara has hosted literary readings, science programs, writing workshops, and arts & culture presentations. We look forward to expanding our collection to include musical instruments, sewing machines, and other nontraditional library items. 

Spend an afternoon reading in our tropical-themed library or browse the unique art prints & jewelry, vinyl, and gift books in our Shop. As an all-volunteer organization, all proceeds benefit Makara's library & educational programs. We are located at 811 N. Main St Santa Ana CA 92701.

All are welcome.
