PHILADELPHIA – The Association of Library Trustees, Advocates, Friends and Foundations (ALTAFF), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), is partnering with Entertainment® Publications, LLC to offer a coupon booklet fundraiser to library Friends groups who are group members of ALTAFF.

Friends of the Library groups can raise funds with their own coupon booklet,  customized with their library photo, logo and name on the front cover. There are no upfront costs, and groups will earn up to $10 per coupon booklet sold. Booklets feature 40 coupons specifically selected for each local group. Plus, those who purchase the coupon booklet receive access to the Digital Savings Club website, where they can print hundreds more offers in their area. Following approval, booklets are delivered in three to four weeks.

The back cover of the coupon booklets feature ALTAFF’s national spokesperson, the comedian and author Paula Poundstone, and her quote “If you haven’t been to your library lately, you’re overdue!”

“ALTAFF is excited to partner with Entertainment to offer this fundraising opportunity to ALTAFF group members,” said ALTAFF Executive Director Sally Gardner Reed. “This partnership will give Friends groups a fun and unique way to raise money for their libraries.”
