2023 Fall Appeal Underway

It’s that time of year again! Did you know that over 50% of FAL’s donations come from the Annual Fund Appeal? This major fundraising campaign is held twice a year during the spring and fall, with all proceeds benefiting the Alameda Free Library and providing much-needed support for the library’s services and facilities improvements. As we celebrate our library, we encourage you to join our fall campaign to ensure that our our Library keeps providing outstanding programs and services for patrons of all ages. Consider joining our Annual Fund Giving Circles for advance notice of special events, sales, and other perks! The Giving Circles are a small way for us to express our thanks for your support of the Alameda Free Library.


There are multiple ways to donate to the Annual Fund: cash, check, credit card, donor advised funds, and stocks. FAL welcomes gifts of any amount. Here’s how you can give to the fall campaign:
