Friends of Orange County Public Library

Ever wondered who steps up when state and county budgets don't quite meet our library's needs? Enter Library Friends groups! These groups provide crucial support, funding indispensable items like equipment, furniture, and cutting-edge technology, as well as programs and services that enrich our community. They play a pivotal role in co-sponsoring author events, advocating for the library's needs with local authorities, and volunteering their time and energy at special library events.


Since its inception, the Friends of the Orange County Public Library (FOCPL) has been a cornerstone of support, ensuring the library remains a vibrant hub of learning, culture, and community engagement. Their relentless dedication has materialized in a plethora of ways – from significant infrastructural enhancements, such as secure shelving and modern furnishings, to fostering a love of reading through programs like the Summer Reading Experience. 

Our children's librarians, with their unwavering dedication, are constantly identifying critical needs to ensure that moments of bonding, learning, and wonder continue for generations to come. We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Friends of the Orange County Public Library in a collective mission to raise funds for new furniture tailored to the needs of neurodivergent youth. These unique and inclusive furnishings are designed to create a comfortable and welcoming space for these young individuals in our community. If the art in this exhibit, or if this initiative, resonates with you, please consider contributing. Let's work together to create countless more memories, where tales come alive, and young minds are inspired in an environment of inclusivity and support.

By donating to the FOCPL, you're not only contributing funds; you're investing in a future of growth, innovation, and enriched services. Your generosity can help write the next chapter for our library. Every contribution, big or small, can make a tangible difference. So, join us in this exciting venture and be part of the legacy that ensures the Orange County Public Library continues to shine as a beacon of enlightenment and community connection for all!


This fundraiser will run from September 1st - December 31st.

With a donation of $25, you can also get an optional individual Friends membership, or for a donation of $40 you can get an optional family membership.


Thanks for supporting the Friends of the Orange County Public Library!
