What is the Annual Fund?

Twice a year in the Spring and Fall Friends of the Alameda Free Library holds its fundraising campaign for the Annual Fund.

The Annual Fund is the cornerstone of FAL’s fundraising efforts.

What does it do?

So much!  It keeps the lights on at our Friends @ Home virtual programming and Books for Friends. It helps keep our online newsletter and media updates going and covers our ongoing operational expenses including staffing.

The Annual Fund also allows Friends to continue it’s ongoing support to the Alameda Free Library for the many library programs and services you have come to love.

Boys and Girls Program

Adult and Teen Programs

Alameda Reads

As our our other fundraising events come out of hiatus due to the pandemic, the Annual Fund is now more important than ever to shore up our programs and services for the future. Please consider making a generous gift to the Annual Fund today.
