The Friends' Mission

Friends of the Lake Oswego Public Library is dedicated to support projects for community use, in particular those involving new technology and/or financial benefit, to actively support levies and other library funding and to provide programming for the community.

Friends does not assume responsibility for programs and projects that would normally be funded through public monies. Friends efforts are an enhancement to, and not a replacement for, governmental support of the library.

Friends also assists the Library during some events, including Rox in Sox, the Storytelling Festival, Music and Author Nights, and Knights of Veritas. Friends is a primary supporter of the LO Reads program.

The BOOKtique Used Book Store

The BOOKtique directly helps the LO Library through grants and program funding. Your generous donations of used books allows the Friends and the Library to provide programs such as Lake Oswego Reads, Summer Reading, Music in the Stacks, Books for Babies, Author Visits, and more.
