Friends of the Salinas Public Library


The Friends of the Salinas Public Library (FOSPL) is a non-profit public benefit organization of volunteers providing financial contributions to the City of Salinas Library System. FOSPL funds programs and purchases not within the library budget. FOSPL also works to create public awareness of and community support for the library and its literacy programs.

The Big Idea

Books in the home are essential for preparing children for a lifetime of success. The Friends of the Salinas Public Library will partner with the library to support the Big Idea of helping families establish their baby's first library. With the Books at Birth Year (BABY) Program. Families who participate in the Salinas Public Library's early literacy programs, like Story Time and parent child play groups, will be invited to choose 6 free books throughout their baby's first year.

All the services the library has been providing through this pandemic have really been great. The library has been a huge support in our children's education.
