Who We Are:
The Antioch Library Friends (ALF) is a non-profit organization founded in 1985 that supports the Antioch Public Library District through volunteer services and fundraising events. ALF funds many library programs and projects with proceeds from our used book store located in the front of the Antioch Library, our yearly book sale, and monthly silent auctions, as well as our membership donations.
The Antioch Library Friends are recipients of multiple Presidential Volunteer Service Awards. As a group they have earned the Silver Presidential Volunteer Service Award for performing 500 – 999 volunteer service hours in a year and they have earned the Gold Presidential Volunteer Service Award for performing 1,000+ volunteer service hours in a year. Without their dedicated volunteering the Antioch Public Library District would not be able to provide some of the great services we provide for the community.
We have a monthly meeting the 1st Thursday of the month (no meetings in June & July), and all are welcome to attend. Stop in and see what we are all about. Curious about what goes on at our meetings? Past meeting minutes are available via the link below.
