The monthly meeting of the Altamont Free Library Board of Trustees will take place on Monday, September 16th at 7pm in the Library’s meeting room. 


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! 

Museum Passes Available!                                                                      There are now several local museum passes available at the library! These include:
