Friends of the Library

Lake Country currently does not have a Friends of the Library group to support the Lake Country and Oyama Branches of ORL. The role of a Friends of the Library group would be to encourage literacy and reading enjoyment through the use of the library and a commitment to the ongoing enhancement of the Lake Country Branches.

 

If this is something that you would be interested in getting involved with please come into the Branch and fill out a Membership Interest Form!
