* Friends of the Oliver Library

The Oliver Branch has a very active Friends of the Library group. They hold their Annual Book Blast Sale on the first Saturday of July each year. Donations for their book sale can be dropped off at the Oliver Branch from January to July each year during our open hours or you can call the library to arrange for one of their members to pick up your donations.

The Friends of the Oliver Library are always looking for new members, if you are interested in joining them; please ask at the circulation desk for one of their membership pamphlets.

      Books to Your Door

The Oliver branch’s “Books to Your Door” service is a volunteer program offered by the library that matches homebound readers with a volunteer who will pick up book selections at the library and deliver them. If you would like to be part of this program either as a volunteer or a recipient please call the library for more information.
