Consider a gift to the Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries to honor someone who inspires resilience in your life. We will send them a letter of recognition, and they will receive special kudos online this summer from the Friends. Whether it’s someone in your immediate family or someone you have yet to meet, give a gift to FSCPL in their name and let your community know how their words and actions inspire resilience in you. Simply click on this link and follow the prompts.
