Get Involved



Financial donations to the Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library (Friends) enable the Library to purchase important materials and resources that they otherwise would not be able to obtain. Your donations supplement the annual budget provided through the City of South Pasadena and a library tax paid by property owners.

We use our membership fees and donations to purchase e-books and to supplement the traditional catalog. We also make possible dozens of programs offered to the community each year, including author nights, film screenings, cultural events, and musical & theatrical performances. We are a major underwriter for the annual Summer Reading Program, which serves approximately 2000 children of the community for free.
