Private funds make the difference between good libraries and great libraries.

We have a great library! Thank you for making it so!

About Us

The SPLF shares your love and appreciation of our beautiful and historic library. We raise funds to enrich the library’s materials, programs, and services far beyond what the city would be able to provide.


Shade for the terrace, Sunday hours, and a wealth of information and entertainment that would not otherwise be possible!


“A library outranks any other one thing a community can to do benefit its people.”
–Andrew Carnegie
