News & Events

Thank you for supporting your Friends!

Through your generous donations, we managed to raise nearly $5,000 from this year’s Santa Cruz Gives! The Friends of the Santa Cruz Library were also able to win the special award of having the most donors under 35 years old, granting us an extra donation of $1,000 to go towards funding and improving your library programs. Our success would not be possible without you and we look forward to your continuous support throughout the rest of 2017!
