About the Friends

The Friends of the Oro Valley Public Library was incorporated as a 501c3 nonprofit organization in June 2001. Friends' members are volunteers who care about our library and are working to help make it even better. The group raises funds for the library furnishings, programs, and services. The Friends' are responsible for the updated computers in Oro Valley Branch Library's computer classroom and sponsor, in part, the wireless printing service available in the branch.

Friends activities include two annual booksales in the library and an annual a dinner called "Supper in the Stacks" to honor the many volunteers who help the library.
