The Santa Maria Public Library Foundation (SMPLF) is a nonprofit, charitable 501c3 supporting all five libraries in Cuyama, Guadalupe, Los Alamos, Orcutt, and Santa Maria. The mission of the Santa Maria Public Library Foundation is to assist and advance the mission of the Santa Maria Public Library system by providing advocacy, resources and materials. The Foundation has supported the purchase of the Library bookmobile, chromebooks for afterschool homework help, the annual cowboy poetry contest and event held the weekend before the Santa Maria Rodeo, local history displays, and MakerSpace programs. The Foundation holds an annual fundraiser each February and a volunteer recognition event in April. Volunteers in the SMPLF meet bimonthly to plan and organize fundraising projects and the organization’s events.
