Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

The Friends & Foundation raises funds to support the resources, services, and programs of the Arlington Public Library System that are not supported by tax dollars.

The Friends & Foundation raises funding through biannual book sales, grant writing, special events, and direct solicitation.

The Friends & Foundation has a board of directors that meet on a quarterly basis and a staff liaison from the Library who helps manage the nonprofit organization.

The Friends & Foundation will be successful when the organization's support of the Library is shown to enhance the social, cultural, and/or economic, vitality of our community.

In the first two years following the October 2016 merger of the Friends of the Arlington Public Library and the Arlington Public Library Foundation organizations to form the Friends & Foundation, the organization contributed over $1.4 million to the Arlington Public Library System.
