The San Carlos Friends of the Library (SCFOL) is a completely volunteer organization, a Chapter of the Friends of the San Diego Public Library, a 501 (c)(3) organization. Although the San Carlos Branch Library opened its doors on January 9, 1974, May 15, 1982, marked the first meeting of the San Carlos Friends of the Library. It was founded by 45 area residents with the expressed mission of “focusing public attention on the library’s services, facilities and needs; to strengthen and expand library services; and to stimulate the use of the library facilities as a cultural resource center for the community.” The first monthly used book sale was held in August, 1982 and netted $242. Our monthly used book sales, memberships, and donations are our primary revenue sources. We thank the San Carlos Community for its continued support since our early days as we continue the mission of the SCFOL founders, the FSDPL
