The Friends of the Altoona Library support programs and activities
of the Library by raising money and volunteering their time.
The Friends of the Altoona Library hold a used book sale twice a year, once in the spring and again in the fall. Profits support programs and activities at the library. The Friends present the proceeds from their trust fund and money from their general fund to the Library each year for materials and programming. Last year the Friends donated over $50,000 to the Library.
The Friends hold a Membership Teas in September and May with presentations from guest speakers. They also present monthly evening programs on a variety of topics. The membership drive is open all year. For more information, please contact the library at 814-946-0417.
