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!  The Annual Fund can provide a book delivery to the home of a senior in Alameda or funds for literature about Girls & Women or our AAPI communities. It keeps the lights on at our Friends @ Home virtual programming, helps keep our online newsletter and media updates going and covers our ongoing operational expenses.  The Annual Fund also allows The Friends to continue it’s ongoing support to the Alameda Free Library for the many library programs and services you have come to love.

With our other fundraising events on hiatus due to the pandemic, The Annual Fund is now more important than ever to shore up our programs and services until we can once again share our Alameda community spaces in safety. Please consider making a generous gift to the Annual Fund today.
