Give

One of the most impactful ways to support the Altadena Libraries is to make a financial gift to one (or more) of our support organizations, the Altadena Library Foundation and Friends of the Altadena Library.


Altadena Library Foundation

On Tuesday, November 27, the Altadena Library Foundation joins organizations around the world to encourage and inspire people to give to non-profit organizations. On the heels of shopping-focused Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday celebrates the transformational power of philanthropy.

This Giving Tuesday, and throughout the final months of the year, please consider a tax-deductible gift to the Altadena Library Foundation. All monies raised by the Foundation go directly to the Altadena Library District to support critical needs, including free community programs and facility improvements.

While we know there are many notable charities that need support this year, don't overlook the incredible work of your local library, which serves nearly 60,000 Altadenans each year. Donations big and small make a tremendous impact, and are greatly appreciated!

To make your donation, drop off or mail cash or a check (made payable to Altadena Library Foundation) to the Altadena Library Foundation at 600 E. Mariposa Street, Altadena, CA 91001. OR you can make a payment online by clicking the Donate button below.

The Altadena Library Foundation was incorporated on October 7, 2009. It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, Tax ID # 27-0999622.
