Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Orange Public Library

"A growing group of public spirited citizens, dedicated to volunteer support of public library service."

The Friends of the Orange Public Library is a non-profit organization of community residents who believe in the value and future of our public library. The Friends support the Library with funds from the Friends Bookstore, by receiving and encouraging personal donations, bequests from estates and distributions from trusts, and by encouraging community support for a better library. This wonderful group of volunteers has been serving the Orange Public Library and the community since 1959.
