What your donations, purchases and volunteer work help us do!
Over the years, the Friends of the Oro Valley Public Library have provided tens of thousands of dollars of books and equipment, and have subsidized classes, lectures, programs and author events. You can see all the programming available, by visiting the Oro Valley Public Library website.
Initiatives for Our Library
Recently, Library Board Members met and approved the funding for two modular study rooms, so that patrons have more room to enjoy books at the Library. They also approved funding for additional outside lighting in the front porch area.
Friends of the Oro Valley Public Library launched a “Books for Teachers” program and provided $3,750 worth of free book vouchers to local classroom teachers through a grant from The Renee B. Fisher Foundation.
All inquiries about Books for Teachers or donations should be directed to the520-594-5670.
The friends donate many volumes to various organizations in support of literacy in the community. Veterans groups, prison support groups, Pima county Bike book program, and local food banks receive excess books. In addition both shops maintain a cart of free books available to citizens.
The Friends of the Oro Valley Public Library also runs an online store at Amazon which brings in an average of $2,000 per month for the library! Click here to learn more about the women who make this possible.
