Annual Report

March 31st 2021 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 through an annual donation (see panel on the left). The FOAL year is to March 31st. Members may attend and vote at the charity's AGM and help determine its policies.

The membership donations support the Library services, 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 have decided to put the Loyalty Card scheme into abeyance and we are not offering a Loyalty Card for the 2021-2 year. We urge you to continue to shop locally to support your shops of choice.
