The Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries was founded by volunteers and volunteers are still the clockwork that keeps our gears turning. Our Board of Directors, Committee Members, Chapter Officers, and Chapter members, are all volunteers. Our bookstores have always been run by volunteers, and volunteers have contributed a wide variety of expertise and knowledge, care and hours to make our organization run smoothly. Volunteers devote thousands of hours a year to help the Friends support the Libraries. COVID changed things for the Friends, and shut down many of our bookstore operations, except those at the Capitola Mall. As we look forward to advancing into a new, post-COVID era, we will continue to want assistance in many areas, both locally at the chapter level, and countywide, for the Friends as a whole. Please indicate your special skills and interests, as well as your availability.
