 Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Library Volunteer with FSCPL

Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries’ (FSCPL) volunteers are a dedicated group of men, women, and young people who eagerly support the Friends’ activities. We raise money to support library programs, help build library collections, upgrade services, and continue community outreach. We need a broad base of volunteers to keep our libraries strong and growing. Find out more on the FSCPL Volunteer page.

To become a volunteer, fill out the online application or pick up an application at the Friends’ office in the Downtown Branch. For more information, contact Mary Kopp, the Friends' Volunteer Coordinator, at 831-427-7707 x 5790 or by e-mail at
