How We Raise Funds
Twice a year, the Friends of the Almaden Library bring out all of the gently used books and media that have been donated and have a one-day sale. The prices are extremely reasonable and the Library's patrons look forward to the events. The money made from these events are donated back to our local library for local programs and needed materials.
We also have a small amount of books for sale all year round in the lobby of the Library.
Please come and check out our sales. Every dollar donated goes back to your community!
