The library's Friends thank you

By Joyce Hall, president - Friends of the Santa Maria Public Library

The Friends of the Santa Maria Public Library want to thank our customers for supporting our recent book sale to benefit the library. Many of them were regular visitors to our former shop. We are also grateful to the large donations of books from David Adams, a former bookseller, and Joe Lazaer of AL&S Inc.

Our hardworking volunteers prepared and conducted the sale. Volunteers are the framework for all we accomplish for the library: public programs and funds for books and other materials. In 2018, we granted the library $47,000 and in the 10 years in our library shop, we gave $500,000 to the Santa Maria Public Library. 

The sale was one of the fundraising events that will help fulfill some of the library's wish list for 2019. Thank you to all library supporters.
