Page Turners

Your monthly gift is one of the most reliable and efficient ways to donate and Open Doors at the Santa Barbara Public Library. When you become a Page Turner, your recurring gift will be conveniently and automatically deducted from your credit or debit card each month and put to work immediately for the growth of our Library.

How It Works:


As a Page Turner, you can start, change, or cancel your gift at any time. Your contribution is deducted directly from your credit or debit card. You can contribute an amount that works best for your budget.


The Library Foundation will charge your pledged amount to your credit or debit card each month. You can choose to make a secure donation online or contact the Library Foundation to discuss other monthly giving options.


You’ll receive a convenient annual giving receipt for tax deduction purposes. Your monthly gift can still be designated to a specific purpose, or you can use your monthly gifts as a tribute in honor or in memory of someone special to you.

Thank you to our Page Turners!
