Message from the President:
Thank you again to everyone who helped the Friends support the Alamance County Public Libraries during the past year. If you donated books & materials, shopped through our AmazonSmile account, volunteered your time and/or shopped during the sales, you also helped provide funding for the amazing variety of innovative library programs.
Let’s do it all again in 2017. I’ll bet it won’t take us 32 years to raise our second million dollars!
Remember: Friends of the Library gets a portion of sales through our AmazonSmile account any time you shop there.
See details below.
President, Friends of the Library

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."

Thank you to the many people who shopped, donated books, and/or volunteered during the Spring Book Sale!
On July 18, the Alamance County Board of Commissioners voted to let ACPL move ahead with fundraising to purchase a bookmobile. Friends of the Library is pleased to add that we have already pledged financial support for this project.
