Friends of the Antigonish Library work to support the Antigonish Town and County Library – the People’s Place. We work to raise awareness in the local community of the wonderful resources on offer at our library – we do this by sponsoring events in the local community and by hosting events to further encourage the local community to visit and use our library.
Our fundraising efforts help library staff to offer innovate and creative programming and to augment the library’s collection in a way that simply wouldn’t be possible without our support and the support of those who contribute to our fundraising events.
Thanks to library friends and community members, The People’s Place: Antigonish Town and County Library was named Canada’s Best Public Space in the 2014 Great Places in Canada contest.
If you want to get involved: Consider becoming a FoAL board member. We are seeking candidates now to be elected at our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday June 20th at 7:30pm at the People’s Place Library (Room TBA). All library users and prospective board members welcome.
