To all our ALFA Friends,


October brings our Annual Membership Drive.  Because of the pandemic last year, it makes this year's drive even more important.  Some of you were very loyal and supported us even though our bookstore was closed most of the year.  Since we reopened June 15, so many of our patrons have expressed how excited they were to be able to come in again to browse our expansive selections and take advantage of our great prices.  All of our volunteers are happy to see so many familiar faces and reconnect.


Did you know …


          The Alpine Branch of the SD County Library serves approximately 3000 patrons a month


          ALFA sponsored over 90 different programs pre-pandemic.  We are anxious to restart these programs, and the library is already planning to begin a couple programs for preteens and teens ages 12 and over.


          98% of all ALFA funds go directly to the Alpine Library.  These funds are raised through bookstore sales, membership dues and donations.


         In September 2021, ALFA contributed $4,975 of matching funds to the Alpine Library for new books and DVD's for both kids and adults


          ALFA volunteers contribute over 300 hours per month when in full operation.


Why become a Member …


          ALFA is a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization.


          Membership is only $15 annually and 100% of the dues goes directly to the library for books, DVD's, magazine subscriptions and programs.


          The ALFA Bookstore offers a special Members Only 1/2 Price Sale every month which is not open to the general public.  This is being reinstated starting November.


           Receive a coupon for a free book and pen with your new or renewed membership.


More information about ALFA can be found on our website at  The Alpine Library serves the greater Alpine community, and we would greatly appreciate your support by joining our family of friends.  Our President's Report and Membership Application are located below.


Thank you.
