Friends of The Altoona Area Public Library
1600 5th Avenue
The Friends of the Altoona Library support programs and activities of
the Library by raising money and volunteering their time. They 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 $30,000 to the Library.
Friends hold a Membership Tea in September with a presentation from a
guest speaker. They also hold a Spring Tea. They also have various bus
trips throughout the year. Membership drive is open all year.
