Support our children
By offering ongoing and special programs for all age levels and many interests, the Library functions as more than a warehouse for books; it serves as a vital center for the intellectual and cultural life of our town. The Friends are proud to help it carry out that role.
Friends of the Orono Public Library monthly book sales will resume on January 25. These sales feature great books and media items (DVDs, audiobooks, etc.) for both children and adults at great prices. Sales will be held at the Orono Public Library from 9:00 a.m. to noon on the last Saturday on January 25, February 22, March 29, and April 26 Also watch for these special events sales- Backyard Bash on June 12, Orono Festival Days on Septeber 6 and a Holiday Sale on December 6 held in conjunction with local ventdors. Donations of books in readable condition and media items in playable condition are welcome-- bring them to the library by the last Friday of every month. Proceeds from these sales support library programs for children and adults.
The bags have arrived! Membership renewals are happening now, and for those who donate $25 or more, you will receive a shopping tote with the Friends and Kiwanis logo. The Orono-Old Town Kiwanis underwrote part of the cost of the production of the bags. The logo was created by Evan Habeeb of Rain Storm Consulting. Look for the display at the library. Come get your bag if you have joined at the $25 level or are a lifetime member. You can also pay online or by mail using the info below!
