This Friday the Library, June 13th, the LIbrary will be closing early at 3:00 p.m. in order to set up for the Alameda County Library Foundation’s annual fundraising gala “A Night in the Library — Your Passport to Adventure”.  This is the first year that this gala event has been held at the Dublin Library and the Foundation will be setting up for a beautiful and gracious party with lots of entertainment, food and drink. 

The fundraising that the Library Foundation does on behalf of Alameda County Library is critical in a climate of decreasing revenue for public libraries.  Since its inception in 1996, this amazing group of community leaders have raised $3 million dollars for the county library system.   This is money that has funded homework centers, summer reading programs, storytimes and senior programs at all the county branch libraries.
