Wish List Partnerships
The Santa Cruz Public Libraries (SCPL) is joining with local bookstores to put materials on library shelves and support local businesses. Library supporters can buy books, DVDs, CDs, or gift cards and the stores will donate them to the Library.
We need multiple copies of many items and Library staff has prepared wish lists of books and other materials that shoppers can purchase at a participating bookstore and their gifts will be sent to the Library. People can also donate to the Library's collection by purchasing a gift card at a favorite bookstore and Library staff will use the gift cards to buy needed books. See our Wish List page for more information.
Think Local First...and Support the Library! Thank You!
