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.

To merge or not to merge? The vote on the merger between FOL and the Alameda Free Library Foundation will take place on August 17th. Here's a page that explains the issues.
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!
