Library Lovers Unite!
The $4.8 million reduction in budget in fiscal year 2020-2021 has drastically impacted the Santa Monica Public Library operations, community access, staffing, collections, materials, programming and technology.
The Friends have been a long-time funder of Library Programs. Prior to Covid-19 the Friends donated $100,000 a year to the Library from its Bookstore proceeds and Friends memberships. For the safety of our volunteers the Bookstore is currently only operating its online store and hosting periodic outdoor sales.
Your Friendship is needed now more than ever to sustain our vital program funding.
