Have you ever borrowed a best-seller from the library? Taken a child to story hour at the library? Sat in the chairs to browse a magazine at the library? The services you enjoy have been given to the Los Altos Library by the volunteer group Friends of the Library of Los Altos, and this support may be coming to an end.
The volunteer group collects, sorts, stores and sells books to raise money to augment the library’s programs and services. The organization finances most of the children’s programs, including story hour. It purchases the best-seller books for us to borrow. It purchases new furniture when it is needed. It operates the cafe in the lobby. It has donated on average $170,000 with no strings attached over the last two years to the library.
