Library Director, Ned Branch commented “Through the years, the donations from the Endowment Fund have allowed the library to provide more and better service to Santa Paula, such as new computers for the public, improved Internet access, and the purchase of new books. Further, without their ongoing support, the library would have to reduce its hours of service by the equivalent of almost three weeks per year. The foresight of the Endowment Fund founders has provided invaluable support.”
Tax deductible donations of any size are most welcome (and needed) and can be made at any time to the non-profit “Blanchard Endowment Fund,” a 501(c) 3 organization, and sent to the Blanchard Community Library Endowment Fund, located at 119 N. 8th Street, Santa Paula, CA 93060.
