Save the Date – October 19, 2019
Plan to attend this super event at Blue House Too at Watter’s Creek, 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 19. Friends of the Library is teaming up with the Allen Library Endowment Fund (https://www.allenlibraryendowment.org) to host a fundraiser to “Celebrate the Future of the Allen Public Library.”
ALLen Reads author Bryan Mealer will be special guest and available to answer questions about The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, the New York Times best-seller he co-wrote with William Kamkwamba. The book has been translated into more than a dozen languages and released as a major motion picture. Wine, chocolate and other goodies will be available in support of STEAM learning programs at the library.
Your Chance to Leave a Legacy
Visionary leaders of Allen created the Friends of the Allen Public Library Endowment Fund to increase the long-term financial strength of the library, enrich its capabilities, and expand its potential for the benefit of all Allen residents. With reductions to the state and federal funding, the Endowment Fund fundraising efforts are critical to the continued excellence of the Library.
Tax dollars can pay for a good library, and a committed community can make its library great. The Endowment Fund helps to give the community something of lasting value as well as access to diverse information, lifelong learning, entertainment resources, and services for Allen residents.
Support long-term library excellence through a gift today!

- Give when you buy or sell a home (and save money!) using the Ebby Advantage Program
