 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 appeals to you and you would be interested in getting involved please contact Wendy at Lake Country Branch.




 Library Tours

We can provide tours to classes/groups free of charge. For students, we can provide an introduction to the library or tailor the visit around a project or assignment. For adult groups, we can provide a tour of the library and ORL's many resources! Contact us to book your tour!


School or Group Visits

 Interested in having someone come to visit your Class or Group in Lake Country to talk about the resources and programs we offer? Contact us!
