Friends of the Orono Public Library

Since 1993 the Friends of the Orono Public Library have played an indispensable role in funding library services (like programming and state park passes) not covered by the Town library budget.

Friends of the Orono Public Library is a group of residents of Orono and surrounding communities who help the Orono Public Library carry out its community mission by providing financial and other kinds of support. They believe a town's library is a valuable community resource.

Overview

Friends of the Orono Public Library is a group of residents of Orono and surrounding communities who help the Orono Public Library carry out its community mission by providing financial and other kinds of support. They believe a town's library is a valuable community resource.

The Friends of the Library have provided funds for special programs as well as annual passes for the Maine Discovery Museum, Emera Astronomy Center and Maine State Parks. 

By offering ongoing and special programs for all age levels and many interests, the Library functions as more than a warehouse for books; it serves as a vital center for the intellectual and cultural life of our town. The Friends are proud to help it carry out that role.
