The Friends of the Oliver Library believe that libraries play an increasing social role in our communities. Their goal is to enhance the available funding to make our library a place of great pride in Oliver. They have raised money most years through a winter book sale and a summer paperback sale. You can support the work of the FOTOL by taking part in the:Annual Used Book Sale Saturday, July 4th Oliver Regional Library Donations of paperback books welcome. Books can be dropped off at the Library until July 3rd
These book sale funds have been supplemented by soliciting donations from community organizations and the general public. Since their inception in May 1998, the Friends of the Library have directed more than $45,000 in funding towards creating an especially welcoming place for children, teens and seniors. They play an important role in stimulating the use of the library’s resources and services by the public.
