Friends of the Olney Public Library
The Friends of the Olney Public Library met for the first time October 21, 2004 to organize a group which would channel public support for the library. Their mission is to focus attention on library services and the facility. The Friends provide program assistance for adults and children, both entertaining and cultural in nature. They recruit funds from local sources to support library activities through their annual book sale and membership drive. A Word's Worth, the groups quarterly newsletter, is published in January, April, July, and October. The newsletter includes book reviews submitted by local readers, words of wisdom, and library events.
The Friends are a dedicated group who volunteer their time and talents in numerous ways. Membership information is available at the library or through Friends members.
