The mission of the Austin Public Library Foundation is to support and strengthen Austin’s public libraries.
To accomplish this goal, the Foundation works to increase awareness about the Library and its importance to the community and to raise funds through individual gifts, corporate sponsorships, and foundation grants. These funds are used to provide programs, equipment, and holdings in the Austin Public Library.
One way funds are raised is through the APLF annual fundraising event and silent auction that will be held on Sept. 12. Authors interested in donating an autographed book(s) or item for the silent auction should contact Diane Hernandez–no later than the second week in August–to arrange for shipping and/or for her to pick up your donated item and form.
