Everyone’s routines have been affected by the current pandemic, but few things have changed more than the “back to school” process for 40,000 Santa Cruz County students, their families and their teachers. Because the county’s 10 school districts are operating remotely this fall, the Santa Cruz Public Library’s online resources are more important than ever.
While Equal Access Santa Cruz is working to make sure each student has an internet connection, we are working to ensure that teachers and students have access to materials. We are pleased to announce that we have partnered Santa Cruz County schools for a new campaign to put electronic resources in the hands of our teachers and students. This year, we anticipate much greater need for these digitally accessed materials.
 The Santa Cruz Public Libraries need at least $25,000 to add to their current collection. Can you help us in making this school year one of accomplishment?

Community Resilience Campaign

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.
