2022 is also the 75th anniversary of the opening of the Alpine Public Library. Join FAPL for a 75th Birthday Party that will be held at the Library at 5:30pm on Thursday, June 16. There will be music, light refreshments, and an opportunity to view and bid on Chris Ruggia’s painting, “Pronghorn”.

Painting Auction

At the April 9 Alpine’s Talented Stars fundraiser for the Library, Chris Ruggia made a large painting of a Pronghorn live in front of the event audience. The finished painting is being auctioned online during the June membership drive. Click here to make a bid.
