About the Friends...
The Friends of the Alameda Free Library is a volunteer organization. The Library Friends group was founded in 1973 to increase public awareness of the Library as an essential part of the community and to support the Library in developing services and facilities.
The Friends worked for years toward the goal of a new Main Library. That goal was realized in November 2006 when Alameda's new Library opened at the corner of Lincoln and Oak. The Friends of the Library continue to support and fund projects, equipment, and goals of the Library.
We hope you'll join the Friends and help support the Alameda Free Library.

So – we would like to beg a big favor from you. Please go through your donations and remove the following:
Remember – our goal is to make money to benefit the Alameda Free Libraries. Please use your own recycling bins for your discards so as the Alameda Free Library does not have that added financial burden.
Thanks for your cooperation.
With much appreciation,
The Book Sale Committee
Though the library is closed on Monday and Wednesday mornings, Dewey's café is open. With free Wi-Fi, comfortable seating, and coffee and goodies available for purchase, the library café is a great place to spend your morning while waiting for the library to open at noon. The café opens at 10am and may be accessed from the patio door off of the parking lot at the rear of the library. Check it out!
