Thank You for Supporting the Santa Maria Public Library and Branches

Santa Maria Public Library Foundation (SMPLF) is a nonprofit 501c3 organization, EIN 47-2530364 formed December 24, 2014.  The mission of the SMPLF is to spearhead fund-raising campaigns to bridge the gap caused by shrinking City and County budgets and the growing needs of the Santa Maria Library system’s diverse communities. For more information, contact the City Librarian at 805 925-0951 ext. 2322 or see the Foundation Facebook page.

  • Sort and sell donated materials to benefit the library in acquiring additional print and non-print materials to augment the collection

  • Provide for the purchase and implementation of technology-related resources and equipment

  • Hold fundraising events

  • Sponsor cultural events of interest to the community such as the work of local authors and artists

  • Advocate for their library
