The Friends of the Orange County Library
System was first organized in 1947 as a group of citizens in support of our Library System and the role of public libraries
in general. Over the years, the Friends have worked diligently to raise funds for the Library System and
to educate people about the important role libraries play in enriching the community.
Friends of the Library are people
who know that a community with a first-rate library is a better place to live. Friends of the Library bring
together involved, caring people who are willing to work for exceptional and innovative libraries. If you are someone who cares about the
