October Friends of Library
meets on Saturday, October 7th at 9 amNo meeting in September.
The main function of the Friends of the Library is to augment the programs and events of the County Library system. They help fund Summer Reading programs, monthly Book Clubs and writing workshops. Likewise they provide financial support for library events such as children’s Storytimes, Author Visits, the annual Teddy Bear Parade, and summer Music in the Park series. In addition to programming and events, the Friends fund the purchase of tables, shelving units, signage, magazine subscriptions, and many other items that help the Library thrive. Without the support of the Friends, our Libraries would be very hollow indeed!
Do you shop at Amazon.com? Did you know that if you shop at Amazon Smile instead that .5% of your purchase price could be donated to Alpine County Friends of the Library? It’s easy and it costs you nothing. It works just like Amazon.com but Amazon donates .5% to the charity of your choice. Of course, we hope you choose Alpine County Friends of the Library to help our county library system. Go to the sign-in page and go shopping!. Update any Amazon bookmarks to smile.amazon.com to continue supporting ACFoL. Invite your friends and family to shop with a smile.
