Friends of the Osterhout Library donate $30,000

The Friends of the Osterhout Free Library have donated $30,000 to the Library. The Friends raised the majority of the funds via their annual Book Sale held in late June on the patio of the Osterhout Free Library, plus funds raised yearlong via the Friends Book Shop and book sales at the Circulation Desk.

The Annual Book Sale is the featured fundraiser of the Friends of the Osterhout Free Library. Funds raised via the Book Sale, which is held yearly in June, are donated to the Osterhout to provide materials and programs that the Library could not otherwise offer.

In the last 40 years the Friends have donated over $451,000 to the Osterhout Library from funds raised at the Annual Book Sale.

Membership in the Friends of the Library is available to anyone in the community.
