For more than 25 years, the Friends of the Oak Creek Public Library has existed as an independent organization of people and businesses interested in assisting the library in developing programs, encouraging gifts, promoting knowledge and providing a channel for individuals and organizations to express ideas and make suggestions for library uses and services.
The Friends of the Library meetings are the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the Technology Training Lab, on the 2nd floor of the Oak Creek Library.
Membership in the Friends of the Library is open to everyone. If you’re interested, print off a Friends Membership Application or ask for a form the next time you’re at the library.
Near the Adult Media section on the 1st floor of the library, the Friends have an ongoing sale in the Book Nook. You’ll find books, magazines, CDs, DVDs and other materials.
