The Library's All Abuzz - Presenting a Unique Opportunity to Get Involved in Library Leadership


The Altadena Library is in a special place in its growth. For over 90 years, its services have impacted the community and positively contributed to the development of Altadena and its citizens. While celebrating the 50th Anniversary of its main building and reflecting on the Library's past accomplishments, its leadership teams are also facing the future and making critical decisions about the direction the Library is headed.

That being said, we are turning outward to the community and seeking enthusiastic individuals who are passionate about the Library to join our volunteer support organizations! On Saturday, July 29th from 9:00am to 3:30pm, the Library invites YOU to come learn about the roles, responsibilities, and best practices of the Library's Board of Trustees, Friends of Altadena Library, and Altadena Library Foundation Board, as well as the challenges facing the Library and the future directions for the Library, Friends and Foundation partnership. This retreat-style event will consist of a mix of presentations, discussions, and exercises for all participants: our current volunteers and guests like you who are interested in volunteering for one of our support organizations and becoming more involved in your Library. Plus, lunch is included for all participants!

More information about this exclusive opportunity will be released in the July Edition of the Library's CONNECT* Newsletter, but you can reserve your spot at this event starting today. Please RSVP by either emailing or by clicking the link below; all RSVPs must be submitted by Tuesday, July 25th.
