We on the Board of the Friends of the Orange County Public Library are looking forward to a fun and productive 2017.
First, we’d like to thank all of our Friends members as well as members of the community who supported the Library after it was flooded in January. The Friends held an impromptu fund raiser to cover the insurance deductible, and with your generous help, we exceeded our goal in just a few days.
Last year, the Friends sponsored a pilot project to fund Book Harvest’s Books on Break summer-reading program at New Hope Elementary. This year, we were pleased to continue our support of this important and successful effort to provide children with books for summer vacation reading.
We have also continued our support of the Library’s terrific Summer Learning program by providing funding for activities, prizes, and events all summer long. Summer Learning kicks off June 3 with a fun run and a day of events at the Library. Stay tuned for details on how you can get involved! If you or your organization is interested in sponsoring any Summer Learning events, please contact us.
The Spring Book Sale is coming up: May 12-14 at the Library. Friends members are invited to attend a reception, auction, and sneak peek on Thursday, May 11, 5-7:30. We need volunteers to work the book sale! Please click here to sign up to volunteer.
If you have not renewed your membership for 2017, now would be a great time to do so. Please click here to download an application form, which you can drop off at or mail to the Library. You can also easily renew your membership at the book sale.
If you would like to contribute, volunteer, or join our Board, please contact us at email@example.com. Thank you for being a Friend!
Reminder: Thursday from 5:30-7:30 p.m., we are hosting a kick-off reception for members only in the Meeting Room of the Library. Plan to drop by, get a first peek at the books for sale, and enjoy light refreshments and music. If you have let your membership lapse, this is also the perfect opportunity to renew for 2016!
