The volunteer arms of the Ocean County Library are our Friends groups. The Friends of the Island Library were the first Friends of the OCL, formed in 1959, and have a long and distinguished history of advocacy for library services on LBI.
Library Friends work to advance the Ocean County Library’s mission of “Connecting People, Building Community, Transforming Lives.” Library Friends support the library as a vital community resource through advocacy, fundraising, programs, donations, and volunteerism.
What We Do:
→ Library Friends are more than meetings!
→ Support local branch activities.
→ Sponsor a variety of fundraisers in person and online.
→ Attend community and civic events as library advocates.
