Your support makes a difference. Join Friends of the Arlington Public Library and know that your tax-deductible contribution will be used to provide programming in all branches. Friends supports story times, maker events, author events, Arlington Reads, lectures, summer and winter reading programs, board games, and special programs for children, middle and high school students.
The Friends began a Fund in 1995 to support the Library materials collection – its currency, its depth, its future. The Arlington Community Foundation, founded in 1991 to offer organizations a low-cost stewardship of philanthropic funds, manages the Fund. The Friends intent is to grow the Fund and then to use the annual interest to purchase materials in areas not adequately supported by the county’s operating budget. Cash donations, bequests, securities, all are welcome.
