Library Foundation Membership is a commitment to our city and a pledge to future generations. Join a community of supporters who believe in and celebrate the principles all public libraries stand for: free and equal access to information and ideas that stimulate intellectual curiosity.


Membership comes with year-round benefits, including access to critically acclaimed programs that bring together today’s brightest thinkers, invitations to special events, discounts, and more.


Young Intelligentsia Society

Comprised of Angelenos in their 20s, 30s and 40s, the Young Intelligentsia Society will be the vanguard of the Library Foundation’s mission to raise awareness and support the Library Foundation of Santa Monica.

Avant-Garde Society

As core supporters of the Library Foundation, these members receive invitations throughout the year to exclusive author lunches, dinners, and receptions, which allow them the opportunity to engage in conversations with authors and discuss their work in an intimate setting.

Corporate Sponsorship

The Library Foundation offers corporations the opportunity to enhance their presence in the community through support of a wide range of Library initiatives. In appreciation of their philanthropic support, corporations receive significant benefits and public recognition.
