[She] frequently used the Santa Clara Libraries for over 35 years and believed in the freedom to read, educate, and inspire. She felt those to be human rights and knew the public libraries were a vital key in providing those resources and more. This [bequest] is her way of saying thank you for all your facility had to offer and to help ensure it can continue its vital purpose in the Santa Clara community.
This is a quote from a letter we got along with a bequest someone had made to us, and something we thought was lovely. If you are thinking about including the Library in your will or trust, please take a look at our Planned Giving information.
