Friends of the Montecito Library aspire to provide our library with comprehensive and innovative programming, up to date resources and responsive assistance where residents of all ages can learn, share, create and thrive.
“The Montecito Library, which I first visited in 1993, took my breath away with its charm and the openness of its librarians. Our Library is unique, the exemplar of what a small-town library should be.”Author T.C. Boyle, Honorary Board Member
Our Preservation Plan
Short-Term Operating Funds
The Friends plan to increase annual revenues, through a broadening of our base of donors and an increase in the amount of the average gift to meet annual operating expenses.
The Friends have initiated a capital campaign to replenish, grow and invest our reserves to the point that they become an endowment of sufficient size to assure the future of the library for years to come.
By fostering community awareness and creating a long-term financial strategy, the Friends of the Montecito Library will work to ensure the highest level of services for future generations.
