To all our ALFA Friends,

October brings our Annual Membership Drive.  Many of you may already be members of the Alpine Library Friends Association (ALFA); however, your current membership expires October 31.  Others of you may frequent our bookstore on a regular basis or enjoy one or more of the library programs that we sponsor, but haven’t as yet joined our membership rolls.  The bookstore is now open Monday - Friday, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM, as of June 15, 2021.  We are working closely with the library staff to plan and support in-person classes and programs, hopefully beginning in fall.


Did you know …


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


          ALFA sponsored over 90 different programs over the last year (pre-pandemic).  These programs included tots, K-5 students, middle schoolers, teens, adults and seniors. (Programs will resume just as soon as the County allows.)


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


          ALFA volunteers contributed over 300 hours per month in 2019-2020.


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, magazine subscriptions and programs.


          This fiscal year ALFA has allocated approximately $20,000 for programs and services for the Alpine Library.  Please help us meet our goal by joining our family of Friends.


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. 


Thank you.
