The Friends of the Library of Los Altos and Community is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that raises funds in support of the Los Altos Library.  Our annual contribution of over $100,000 helps maintain and improve library collections and facilities at both the Main and Woodland branches, as well as funds most of the programs for patrons of all ages.
