The Santa Clara City Library Foundation & Friends strengthens the Library as a pillar of our diverse and thriving community through philanthropic funding, inspired advocacy and active partnership.
The Santa Clara City Library Foundation and Friends was established in 2001 by a dedicated group of volunteers for the purpose of raising money for the Santa Clara City Library. The core programs of the Foundation are grant writing, book sales, and individual outreach efforts to support library programs. The Foundation Board actively seeks gifts, grants, and bequests, while the Friends group contributes to this effort by raising funds mostly through the sale of used books that have been donated to the organization. Our contributions to the library have included: working with Kaiser Permanente to support the The Kaiser Permanente Health & Wellness Collection; supporting the city's popular summer reading program; and making the popular Comic Con possible.
