Friends of the Orange Public Library
The Friends of the Orange Public Library is an organization of community residents who believe in the value and future of our public library. The Friends support the Library with funds from the Arline Minor Memorial Bookstore, by receiving and encouraging personal donations, bequests from estates and distributions from trusts, and by encouraging community support for a better library. This wonderful group of volunteers has been serving the Orange Public Library and the community since 1959.
The Friends welcome others to join them as volunteers to assist at the Bookstore, help with Internet sales or donations handling, or serve on the Board of Directors. Interested candidates should call (714) 288-2424 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
FOPL is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit public benefit corporation, and its federal ID number is: 33-0150200.
