Friends of the Library

The Osoyoos Library has a "Friends of the Library" group which meets about 4 times per year.  These hard working volunteers raise money through book sales to support the library in a variety of ways.  Check out our beautiful Bookcase that the 'Friends' had built for us to display used books that we sell throughout the year.   Also our Newspaper rack and Children's Storyhour carpet, all purchased for us by our 'Friends'.  The annual 'Friends' book sale is held every Summer by the fountain at Town Hall.
