The Friends of the Library of Los Altos is made up entirely of volunteers. We think you will enjoy helping our community, too.

Many of our volunteer activities are On Hold while library service is curtailed in accordance with Santa Clara County COVID-19 regulations. You can still join other book lovers in supporting the library with your time and effort, either in person or from home.  You can:

Process donated books

Fun for book lovers & get a first look at the books donated. We need volunteers to help sort and price the books once donations are accepted again.  We are training now for these 2 hour shifts. 

Support the website and social media

We have a Facebook page to help us be engaged with all the members of the Los Altos community. If you are already on the computer and on Facebook, this might suit you. And you can do this from home!
