Upcoming Events

MARCH AT ALTAMONT LIBRARY!

AFL IS FINE FREE IN 2019

Have you heard? For all of 2019, we will be trying something new: No overdue fines on any children’s books! No matter whether you are a kid, parent, teacher, or anyone else, children’s books checked out here (even if we have to get them from another library) will not accrue overdue fines. Even better, if you have existing overdue fines on a AFL Youth Card, we will clear them. We hope that many of our friends take advantage of this experiment, so spread the word!  

Around the World Potluck: Morocco                                                                                                            Monday, March 25 at 6 PM                                                                                                                          Bring a dish to share and join us as we celebrate the cuisine of Morocco! 

π Day Pie Day                                                                                                                                              Thursday 3.14 from Noon to 7 PM                                                                                                                  One of the most delicious days of the year is coming up, and we need your help to celebrate. Thursday, March 14 is Pi Day (Get it? 3.14!) and we’ll be celebrating all of our favorite pies with a pie taste test! If you’d like to enter a pie to the taste test, please give us a call at (518) 861-7239. There will be a prize for the pie maker who gets the most votes. If you’re not a pie maker yourself, you’ve got a role to play too: We’ll need lots of pie tasters to eat and vote!
