Become a Friend

Why Become a Friend?

Friends get early access and ‘first pick’ at all book sales – a special Friends Only night is held prior to the sale’s public opening. You’ll also receive notifications in advance of forthcoming Friends’ events, like the book sales. Most of all, becoming a Friend shows your support of the library as an important resource that enriches lives and builds community.

How Do I Become a Friend?

Anyone can become a Friend. Simply…

1) Sign up for an Oakville Public Library card (free for residents and non-residents)

2) Visit a Circulation Desk at any Oakville Public Library branch

3) Pay the $10 Friendly Fee to receive your Friend designation. You will receive a sticker to be placed on your OPL card that indicates your membership for the calendar year. Stickers for the following year are available after the September Book Sale.
