The Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries (FSCPL) began as a grassroots organization spearheaded by members of the local American Association of University Women. FSCPL was formally incorporated in the summer of 1979.
Within a few short years, the organization grew to over 500 members, organized book sales and book talks, provided equipment and program support for the Santa Cruz Public Library System (SCPL), and developed local FSCPL Chapters for many of the branches of SCPL.
The Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries support the Santa Cruz Public Libraries through fundraising, volunteer services, and advocacy.
FSCPL’s goal is to create stronger neighborhoods and a culturally enriched county through accessible and diverse library programs.
