Nebraska Public Libraries Friends & Foundations

Contact information is provided in the table below for Nebraska public library friends groups and foundations. For information useful to friends groups and/or foundation (or for those libraries interested in starting them), Citizens for Libraries: Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations (ALTAFF), a division of the American Library Association, offers a wealth of information on getting started and maintaining effective organizations (as well as carrying useful tips for library trustees). The Nebraska Library Commission has had a strong working relationship with ALTAFF for a number of years and has purchased membership in the organization for all Nebraska public libraries. This statewide membership results in all libraries receiving copies of ALTAFF’s newsletter, The Voice for America’s Libraries, and has allowed all libraries and their trustees and other supporters free access to “The Trustee Academy,” a series of five presentations on the important responsibilities of trustees.

For further information about library foundations or friends groups contact Richard Miller.

Citizens for Libraries: Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations (ALTAFF) offers a wealth of information in its newsletter, The Voice for America’s Libraries, and on its website Ideas for fundraising, making the case for good local library service, public awareness, strategies, and many other topics are covered here better than anywhere else. Local libraries and their governing and support groups should become intimately familiar with ALTAFF and all it has to offer.
