Dear Friends,
I am sorry to have to inform you that, after five years of leading the Santa Cruz Public Library (SCPL) System, Director Susan Nemitz has announced her plans to retire in August to focus on her health.
All of us at the Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries, and I personally, have been so grateful and honored to have a chance to work with Susan. Among her many accomplishments in her tenure as Library Director, Susan utilized both Measure S bond funding and philanthropic donations raised by us here at The Friends to implement the ambitious Facilities Master Plan to bring all SCPL library branches up to contemporary standards through renovation or replacement.

– Bruce Cotter, Executive Director
