Emergency Fund-Raising to Repair Flood Damage to Orange County Public Library

Donate now.

The Main Orange County Public Library sustained significant flooding during the winter storm this past week. Most of the damage occurred in the Teen Room and the Children’s section of the library. The library lost books in Youth Services, play equipment in the Little Learning Lounge (the space for youngest customers), and furniture in the Teen Room, among other damages.

While staff continues to assess the damage, the Friends of OCPL will be collecting financial donations to offset any expenses not covered by insurance. The Friends have set up a GoFundMe to collect donations. Our initial goal is $1,000. Please go here to donate now.

We will also accept donations by check. Please mail to: FOCPL, PO Box 1238, Hillsborough NC 27278-1238. Write “Flood Donation” in the memo line of your check.

The library plans to reopen on Saturday, January 14. Library leadership will remain in close contact with the Friends regarding the flood damage. We hope all Friends members will show their support of our wonderful library, and please share this fund-raising campaign.

Donate art supplies at the Library

For years we have invited you to drop off donations to our library locations to help others in need. You always respond, providing non-perishables for the food pantry, toys for children at the holidays, and books for our Friends to sell. Thank you!

Now you can provide much needed art supplies to the Orange County Public Schools. Some of our schools have no art budget at all! The ArtCycle program is organized by the Hillsborough Arts Council. You can find out what’s needed here and drop off those supplies at the Main Library anytime that we’re open.
