Little Free Library Opens in Gold Park

On your next visit to Gold Park, check out the books in the “free little library” recently installed along the walking loop. The Orange County Public Library donated books to get the library started, taken from books donated to the library by the community, including members of the Friends. Anyone can take a book to read or leave a book to share at the little library.

First Annual “Friendraiser” Gala

Eventbrite - Friends of the Orange County Public Library - Friendraiser Gala

Join us on August 5 from 4-7 p.m. for our first annual “Friendraiser” Gala.

This “Friendraiser” is our way of sincerely thanking the many volunteers who, over the past years, have given so much of their time and energy in support of the Orange County Public Library. We also hope to share our vision and passion for the Library with the greater Orange County community. The party will be held at the historic Webb House (circa 1800) at 117 E. Queen Street, Hillsborough, NC, with complete access to the house and garden. On site will be face painting, beverages, various and wandering local authors, snacks, and the KONA Italian-ice truck.

Entrance to the Friendraiser is free and all are welcome. If you are not currently a member of the Friends of the Orange County Public Library, we hope you will take this opportunity to join the Friends. Newly signed members will be eligible for a drawing (to be held at the end of the event), for which the prize will be a painting by Hillsborough artist David Terry, with framing generously donated by Sherry Gray of Hillsborough’s Yesterday & Today frame shop.

Eventbrite - Friends of the Orange County Public Library - Friendraiser Gala
Please RSVP by August 1, 2017.
