10-Year Olds, the Main Library Needs Your Help


The Main Branch of the Alameda Free Library turns 10 years old this November. To celebrate this milestone the Friends of the Alameda Free Library would like to gather as many Alameda 10-year olds as possible Saturday, Sept. 10, 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. to participate in a group photo to be used for marketing and in media publications.

The picture will be used to advertise the 10th anniversary celebration of the Main Library in local newspapers, on library websites and social media.

Only those born in 2006 will be permitted to appear in the photo. Parents are asked to bring a signed media/liability release form with them. Copies of the photo will be available for purchase. Order details will be available on the day of the photo. Al Wright of Raintree Studios will take the photograph. 

Kids should wear neat, clean, comfortable clothing. School clothes, a team or scout uniform, or a favorite shirt are acceptable.

The picture will be taken before the library opens on Saturday at the Alameda Main Library, located at 1550 Oak St.

Do not bring props or loose items such as skate boards, scooters, light sabers and, please, no pets.

To help with this effort, contact Luzanne Engh at 325-5776 or luzengh@comcast.net.
