Orange Public Library Foundation
The City of Orange Public Library Foundation was established in 1998 as an innovative, collaborative effort by local leaders and municipal officials united by a common goal: To strengthen support for Orange’s public libraries in order to develop an outstanding library system.
OPLF bridges gaps in tax-based funding through the cultivation of public/private partnerships. Its funding ensures that the community’s growing needs for library services and programs are met by developing library support from individuals, businesses, and community organizations.
OPLF is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit public benefit corporation, and its federal ID number is: 33-0803671.
