Annual Report for FY 2019-2020
Last fiscal year, Friends of the Library of Los Altos total income was $180,000 and we contributed $104,700 to fund library programs and materials, as well as new fixtures and technology. The Covid-19 global pandemic and the subsequent library and book sale closures resulted in a significant drop in revenue over 2018-2019.
