“Friends of Oil City Library seek to promote readership, usage of library materials and involvement of library patrons through volunteerism. This organization’s commitment is to support one of our community’s most treasured public assets, the Oil City Library.”
The Friends of the Library is a volunteer organization that exists to:
Promote Use of the Library
Enhance its Image in the Area
Provide Supplemental Financial Support
Friends fundraising efforts include annual bake sales, book fairs and the sale of commemorative Library items.
Some Friends volunteer on a regular basis and help with shelving materials and making sure that the shelves are in order and neat. Other Friends are very willing to bake, help with programming, plan fundraisers and other things that need to be done.
Over the years, the Friends have provided funds for programming and facility needs which are outside the parameters of the regular Library budget.
