FUNDRAISING

Because the Friends aim to sponsor as many programs and improvements to the library as possible, fundraising is a critical component of our work. In the past, we have hosted holiday raffles, sold engraved bricks, and participated in the Oxford High School Booster Club's Festival of Trees.

BOOK DISCUSSIONS

The Friends sponsor a monthly true crime and mystery book club. Other themed book discussion groups are in the works for the future.
