Through the generous donations, gifts, books, and membership dues to the Friends, the Library and community has benefited by having expanded collections and programs that serve the community. All of the books, DVD’s, CD’s, and puzzles in our used bookstore, The Library Shop, are donated by the community.
The Santa Maria Public Library programs that the Friends support varies year to year, depending on the Library’s needs. Below is a description of some of the library programs that the Friends has supported and is currently supporting.
