Amazon.com has established a program for non-profit groups like the Friends of the Library in which we can receive a donation from them equal to a portion of your Amazon purchases. For eligible purchases, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to your selected charitable organization (and we hope you will choose us!)
Click the link below to start the process. At their home page, type "Friends of Alamance County Public Library" in the search box and our name will pop up for you to select. Once you have selected us, your future Amazon orders should benefit our local Friends organization. However, as Amazon points out: "Remember, if you want Amazon to donate to Friends of Alamance County Public Libraries, you need to start each shopping session at the URL http://smile.amazon.com, and we will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases."
Message from the President:
Over the next few months, the Friends of the Library will sponsor a number of social events to promote our organization and reach out to the community. We hope to talk with people who already know about us and also meet many of those we have somehow missed. We also hope to get even more of the community involved as volunteers with our organization. Below is a list of those events:
* May Memorial branch author Lori Borgman visit Tuesday, May 29th 7-8:30 PM
* Smitty’s Homemade Ice Cream free kiddie scoops Sunday, June 3 4-6 PM
* Iron Gate Winery Social Trivia Night Thursday, June 21 5:30- 7:30 PM
* Mellow Mushroom Family Night trivia Monday, July 16 6:00 – 7:00 PM
* Red Oak Brewery Social Wednesday, August 1 6:00 – 8:00 PM
President, Friends of the Library
