The Friends of the Oakland Public Library is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation whose mission is to support the programs and services of the Oakland Public Library.

The Oakland Public Library is fortunate to have numerous friends groups which provide valuable support to the individual library branches. Branch friends groups are independent of the Friends of the Oakland Public Library (FOPL); however, we do assist one another in our shared goal of supporting the programs and services of the Oakland Public Library. Below is contact information for these groups.
