SCFOL Can Help You Double Your Donation Dollars
Annually, the San Carlos Friends of the Library donates about $20,000 to the San Carlos Branch Library. Most of these funds, and those donated by other Friends chapters, are sent to the Library Foundation and annually matched by the City of San Diego, up to $1,000,000. This is called the City of San Diego Library’s, Matching Fund. Each Friends Chapter’s original donation amount, plus their portion of the Matching Fund, is then distributed back to their individual branch library to purchase whatever is needed by them that fiscal year.
The source of SCFOL’s income is the monthly first Saturday Used Book Sales, SCFOL memberships and donations. Life Memberships are still $250, and life members receive discounts at the Central Library’s Gift shop among other premiums. New Life Members whose checks are received before October 30th each year, will have their names added that year to the life-member plaque on display in the Winer Family Community Room & Art Gallery.
All Friends members can purchase fiction and AV materials at the Friday afternoon (1:30-3:30p.m.) monthly Pre-Used Book Sales. We thank all who patronize our book sales, and who join and donate to SCFOL. Click on Membership-Donation-Form-1
