FOSAPL Calendar & Book Sales
The Friends of the San Antonio Public Library annual gift of over $63,000 in 2015 was a critical resource with important results for our community. Every dollar raised and donated by FOSAPL is appreciated and promptly used to serve our community with the best library services possible. The annual gift is particularly important to fund those areas that otherwise would be underfunded. It is clear that the FOSAPL gift is not just icing on the cake, but rather an important “ingredient” in our recipe for success.
This presentation provides an overview of how the Library utilized the FOSAPL annual gift in 2015.
