AMALAK is a member of the international organization, GFWC (Greater Federation of Women's Clubs). Each club is encouraged to make improvements to their local communities with a project that takes about two years to complete and involves as many other members of the community as possible.
AMALAK choose to participate with the Little Libraries project after the flood in December 2015 when our main library was closed for about a year and a half. Other groups involved were : FOLK, the Lions, Envision Kalama and the Garden Club. In all, five Little Libraries were built and installed by the end of 2017 and are currently being maintained by FOLK.
We were in competition with other clubs on District, State and National levels. AMALAK came in First Place in District and State (National is still being judged). A $50 prize was awarded to the club and was then used to start our next 2-year project -new playground equipment tor Toteff Park.
The Little Libraries are located at: Toteff Park, Stone Forest playground, Kalama Koffee, Helping Hand, and Columbia Terrace.amp Kalama has a bookshelf, located in the laundry room.
