Annual General Meeting


​The AGM was held on November 22nd 2023.


Annual Report & March 2023 Accounts

The Friends of Aldeburgh Library (FoAL) is a group set up to support our local Library through the Aldeburgh Library Foundation, a registered Charity.

Individuals may join the Friends for free although donations are welcome. You may wish to be a Friend if you care about the Library by
 volunteering, using the library services regularly, sometimes paying to join courses or otherwise donating to support the Library. Members may attend and vote at the charity's AGM and help determine its policies. We may also provide feedback to Suffolk Libraires on what services may be appreciated in our library.

The membership donations support the Library, in particular their community activities and events and are eligible for gift aid. Together with the Library we have much to do and more to achieve.

Due to the Pandemic and its impact on Aldeburgh shops and businesses, we  decided to put the Loyalty Card scheme into abeyance and we are not offering a Loyalty Card currently.



The Foundation offers a great variety of volunteering opportunities including:

  • Preparing refreshments for the course participants

  • Helping with the provision of some library services such as the Home Visiting service

  • Helping with promotion of activities taking place at the library

  • Helping us with development of our strategy and the development of the library into a "knowledge hub"

  • Fundraising
