The Friends of the Oak Harbor Library is an organization dedicated to helping the Oak Harbor Library with money and volunteers, as well as providing programs and information about the library and Sno-Isle Libraries. Recipients of the Washington Library Friends and Trustees 1998 Distinguished Service Award.
One book sales is held each fall using the books donated by the public to the group. In addition, a bookrack, found inside the library, is always available during library hours for anyone wishing to purchase books at minimum prices. Friends shirts and book bags are also for sale in the library. All the money collected goes toward a wish list presented by the library for needed items not paid for by the city or Sno-Isle, for example furniture for the teen area and children's area; and the summer reading program for children and teens.
The Friends meet on the third Thursday of October, December, March and May at 3:00pm for short business meetings and a program -- these programs include authors, local people with interesting stories to tell, and community information programs.
