Description

The Friends are a volunteer organization made up of members who recognize that the value of life in a community is enhanced by a quality library system. The Friends commitment is to help the Metropolitan Library System attain and maintain this level of excellence for the people of Oklahoma County. The Friends provide valuable community support and public relations for the library system. In the past, they have assisted the library in winning approval of a county ad valorum millage levy and with funding programs and projects for the library and staff.
The Friends’ largest project each year is a 2 day fundraising Book Sale which raises money by selling donated books and materials. The funds raised are given back to the local libraries in the form of grants. Just over $3 million has been granted back to the local libraries since the Book Sale began in 1981.
