How the Friends Benefit the Albany Library

Each summer the Albany Branch Manager provides the Board of the Friends of the Albany Library with a proposed list of programs, materials, and projects the Friends could fund.
Over the entire year FAL plans to donate almost $50,000 to benefit the library with programs and various services.  Examples include:
Storytellers and Performers
Origami/Craft Programs
Family Sing-a-long weekly
Knitting - weekly
Book Discussion Group
Albany Reads
Career Counselling
Teen Programs
Game Days

*Microfilming & Microfilm Reader
Archiving Historic documents 
Friends cull donations for materials the library wants. 
After sales, unsold books are donated to local non-profit organizations and Bay Area teachers. 
Selected items are set out for FREE
