Friends of the Sacramento Public Library is a membership-supported, non-profit organization that advocates, fund-raises, and provides critical support for the Sacramento Public Library, branch libraries, the Bookmobile, including those in the City and County of Sacramento, and the Cities of Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Galt, Isleton, and Rancho Cordova. The Friends’ fundraising and volunteer efforts allow the library to continue to provide rich programming opportunities focusing on literacy and education and keep fresh material on the shelves at local libraries.

There is a Branch Friends Group at each of the 28 branch libraries of Sacramento Public Library as well as the alt+library friends and the Bookmobile Friends.

Together the Friends operate the Book Den and Warehouse at 8250 Belvedere Ave., Suite E, Sacramento

We invite you to invest in the success of the library by volunteering time, donating books, and helping us raise funds for library programs, equipment, books, and materials. Together we make a difference.

FSPL is in the process of developing a strategic plan to guide and give focus to its activities and to assess whether and how it might need to change to accommodate the ongoing evolution of the Sacramento Public Library. FSPL conducted a survey of its branch affiliates and other interested constituencies. We encourage you to read the entire survey results document to get the best picture of potential recommendations.

We have also prepared a 2-page summary of the results for your convenience.
