The Friends and Our Mission

The Friends of the Lake Oswego Public Library is dedicated to support projects for community use and to actively support levies and other library funding to provide programming for the community. Our efforts are an enhancement to, and not a replacement for, governmental support of the library.

Friends also assist the Library during some events, including Lake Oswego Reads, First Tuesday Music performances, Third Thursday Author evenings, and other special events.  We are a primary supporter of the annual LO Reads community reading program.

Be sure to check out the BOOKtique, a significant fundraising arm of the Friends of the LO Public Library.  Your purchases of used books from the BOOKtique directly help support the LO Public Library through grants and program funding. Your generous donations of used books is also vital to the success of the BOOKtique.  For more information, visit
