- About Us
Friends appreciate library support
The Friends of the Oak Harbor Library would like to thank everyone who made our last book sale a resounding success. In addition to our members who put in many hours sorting, arranging and selling books, we especially want to thank Whidbey Movers and the Oak Harbor High School NJROTC for donating their time and energy moving the books and bookcases from our storage area to the library. Their help is invaluable.
We thank Debbie Mueller from the city of Oak Harbor for arranging the placement of our banner before each sale. We would also like to thank the library staff and its willingness in helping with the collection of books, and especially Toni Kaye’s efforts in choosing donated books for our Book Rack for sale and replenishing the rack faithfully. Much of our money comes from the book rack sales.
The proceeds from the sale of books allow the Friends to fund many programs in the library such as the summer reading program. We also purchase new furniture and equipment to make the library more efficient and comfortable. An example of the contributions of the FOL is the installation of the new circulation area desks.
The Friends appreciate all who donate and buy books and we invite everyone to attend and/or join our Friends group. Our next meeting is Oct. 20 at 3 p.m. at the library when we will have a program on trailblazing photojournalist: Margaret Bourke-White.
