The Oconee County Friends of the Library was organized in 1985. It is a 501(c)(3) organization of volunteers dedicated to serving the Oconee County Public Library System. All activities are undertaken for the purpose of contributing financial and volunteer assistance to supplement the library’s resources, support library programs and stimulate community awareness, use and involvement with the Library.

What do the Friends do?

    • Books (printed, audio and e-books) and other audio-visual materials.
    • Children’s and Teens’ summer reading programs, and the Adult Summer Reading Program – including guest appearances, performances, programs and awards.
    • Furnishings and accessories.
  • The Friends sponsor discussion groups . . .
