Donating to Specific Programs:
Book Fund Drive
The Friends of the Santa Cruz Library is now accepting donations for our Book Fund Drive (BFD). Donations from the BFD go to the purchase of books, audio tapes, DVDs and CDs for our system-wide collection. Please note “Book Fund Drive” on your membership envelope and your check.
I Love the Friends!
The Friends of the Library can’t survive without your generous unrestricted donations to help defray operating costs, as well as provide funding to enable the Friends to advocate for libraries, support volunteer services, and of course, sponsor and collaborate on Library programs and events, including our Central Branch Friends Book Store and four Book Sales each year. Please note “I love the Friends!” on your membership envelope and your check.
“In Honor Of…” Memorial Contribution
What better gift could be given than the gift of literacy?
“In Memory Of…” Memorial Contributions
There is nothing more precious than remembering a loved one who loved reading and libraries by supporting the Library through its Friends in memorial donations and bequests. Please note “In Memory Of…” on your membership envelope and your check.
We turn your pre-read books, tapes, and DVDs into gold by reselling them at our Friends Bookstore at the Downtown Branch and at our Book Sales.
Friends have donated paperbacks and hardcovers to us for many years. The FSCPL is now also accepting donations of eReaders. All SCPL library branches will serve as donation check-points.
We recycle your donations of used cell phone and batteries to raise money for the libraries.
