The Friends organization is proud that our small community has given the library the confidence vote that it deserves! South Pasadena voted overwhelmingly (80.97%) to support the vital role that Measure L plays in our library's long-term fiscal health. The Friends played an important role in the Measure L Campaign's success-both in contributing to the Measure L Campaign and in providing volunteer support for the Campaign's outreach and education. A sincere thanks to all of our Member Friends for your financial assistance, volunteer time, and for your YES VOTES!

Passage of Measure L will ensure that our library can continue to be open seven-days-a-week, provide appropriate resources and staffing, and make much-needed technological improvements, including WiFi upgrades throughout the facility and broadband, fiberoptic connectivity-an upgrade that will vastly improve digital access for both patrons and staff.
Thank you South Pasadena!
The mission of the Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library, Inc.
is to serve the informational, educational, recreational, and cultural needs of
the patrons of the Library and the community at large. The Friends contribute
their time, effort, and resources and seek to engage the widest possible
community participation in this effort.
Since our library's genesis as a "free public reading room" in the 1890s,
it has enjoyed the support of public-spirited community leaders. In 1950, that support crystallized with the formation of the Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library, Inc. Today, more than 700 Friends help to maintain our library's role as a cornerstone of community life.

   The Friends support and enhance library services in many ways.
