Make A Year-End Donation to the Friends & Foundation of Arlington Public Library

It’s almost the end of the year, but there’s still time to maximize your 2017 tax deductions. The IRS allows you to deduct charitable contributions in the year they’re made. Make a tax-deductible donation to the Friends and Foundation of Arlington Public Library before the year is over! You’ll be supporting literacy and library services in Arlington while making the most of your year-end donations.

Wear Your Support

Buy a Dreams Begin Here t-shirt (as seen above) and show your support of the Library wherever you go. These high-quality, baseball-style shirts come in youth and adult sizes, so there’s one to fit the whole family. You can order online or pick one up in person from any of our locations. We have stickers and matching buttons for sale in our branches as well!

Make a One-Time Gift
