Support the Library
Public funding pays only a portion of the Olive Free Library's operating expense. We depend on support from generous individuals like you to help keep our Library a vital part of the community now and in the future.
The Olive Free Library Association is fortunate to receive Town of Olive tax funding which contributes approximately 60% to the annual budget. The remainder is funded by grants, generous contributions from the Olive Free Library Trust, and by individual donations from individuals like you who help keep the Library the amazing resource it is.
Leave your legacy and help ensure the Olive Free Library remains a vital civic asset for future generations with a gift from your estate or designated account. Any planned gifts can be unrestricted supporting the Library's general operating expenses or can be restricted for programs or expenses you choose.
Volunteer / Friends Group
The Olive Free Library heavily relies on volunteers doing many types of work, from helping with selling raffle tickets at our fundraisers to sorting out books for the book sales room to hanging art in our community room before exhibition openings. We are also in the process of setting up a Friends Group. Click here to find out more about volunteering opportunities and how to join the Olive Free Library Friends Group.
