Fall Book Sale
We held our Fall Book Sale on November 3rd 2018 and the net proceeds were $ 6772. These funds will be used by our library to add books to its collection, acquire new technology for the patrons and for several other valuable programs that would make an impact to our community.
We would like to thank all those who donated books, bought books and volunteered at the book sale.
Our next book sale is on April 13 2019.

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 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!
