Happy May! Thank you so much for your ongoing support of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries. I am very grateful for this community and the unique opportunity to lead the Friends as we continue out of the pandemic and through a very exciting time for our local libraries! We hear that the libraries are opening this month for modified browsing. Who would have thought that the promise of modified browsing could ever provide such a pleasant tingle of anticipation? Meanwhile, your generous donations in combination with Measure S funds are making renovations and enhancements at our branches possible. Stay tuned for more details! Meanwhile, enjoy the reopening of the Capitola Branch Library, enjoy La Selva Beach if you haven’t seen it yet, and look forward to Boulder Creek’s reopening later this year!
– Bruce Cotter, Executive Director
