Long time FAL supporter, John Quick, passed away on January 28, 2020. John served as FAL treasurer from July 2003 through 2011 and was a dedicated book sale volunteer, doing what needed to be done including moving boxes of bought books to buyers’ cars. John was passionate about education, volunteering with the Adult Literacy program, and in the Ruby Bridges Elementary School classrooms. He was an avid fisherman and birder. In John’s memory, FAL will make a donation to the Alameda Free Library to support children’s materials. John will be missed by all.
