Changing the Way We Communicate

Readers, we understand that your inbox space is precious! Starting this month, we will be adjusting our email schedule down from our current weekly schedule to bimonthly e-newsletters instead.

In the meantime, all Library events and updates are most easily found in the Library's monthly newsletter, available both online and in print at both Library locations.

For more regular updates, connect with us on the social media platform of your choice: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @AltadenaLibrary.
