Friends of the Alameda Free Library is actively seeking to fill vacancies on its Board of Directors. If you or someone you know would be interested, we would love to hear from you.
As a voting member of the board, you would have the chance to influence the function and direction of the Friends. Members are volunteers who passionately support the library and are willing to devote time and resources to fundraising, community outreach events and library advocacy. They attend the monthly meetings of the board, usually participate in one or more of the Friends’ committees, and help with the various methods of fundraising that the organization uses to support the library.
We hope to expand the diversity of the Board to help inspire creativity and fresh thinking. Also, there is a need for anyone with:
business background and/or connections to the Alameda business community;
skills in accounting or bookkeeping, grant writing, insurance, or investments;
social media expertise and/or web page design and maintenance experience.
For more information or an application, contact Karen Butter, FAL board president at voluteer@alamedafriends.com.
