Annual Back Patio Sponsor

A unique opportunity to promote your local business at the Scotts Valley Library, the sponsorship is recognized by a large sign (36" x15"), prominently positioned opposite the library, in the patio flowerbed.  The sponsorship is valid for a year and allows a business to promote their business name, logo and web site address. Participation in the program will also be permanently recognized on a 'past sponsor plaque'. The annual sponsorship is designed to cover the annual upkeep and maintenance of the patio. The opportunity is open to one company/organization per year. Contact the Friends if you want to be the annual sponsor or want more information.
