Friends of the Oskaloosa Public Library

The Friends of the Oskaloosa Library is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that helps the library through fundraisers and Friends Memberships.

You can become a Friend of the Library by purchasing a yearly membership. Individual memberships are $10, Family memberships are $25 and Business memberships are $100. Click Here for Friends Membership Form.

The money from the fundraisers and memberships goes to support the Books for Babies program and special library needs or projects.

You can benefit too from becoming a Friend! Friends of the Library members get extended check out periods (books, magazines, audiobooks & music for 3 weeks instead of 2 weeks and movies for 7 days instead of 3 days) and a 15% discount on regularly priced books at The Book Vault (just present your membership card at the register).

For further information about the Friends group, email them at: or attend a monthly meeting, held at 4:00 PM on the third Thursday of every month in Meeting Room C on the third floor.
