Thank you for your support!

The Friends Of The Oliver Library are pleased to announce that our 20th Annual Book Sale was a great success, raising over $1,882 in funds that will help support the Children’s Summer Reading Program, as well as other local library initiatives.

We would like to thank the Community of Oliver for their outpouring of donations for our sale and for helping us to enhance the learning opportunities of some of our youngest citizens.

We would also like to acknowledge the following organizations for their ongoing support: Oliver Fairview Self Storage, The Oliver Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, Buy-Low Foods, No Frills Oliver, The Oliver Community Arts Council, Oliver Daily News, the Oliver Chronicle, CBC Radio, The Canadian Diabetes Assoc. “Clothesline,” who pick up our leftover donations at the end of the sale, the wonderful staff at the Oliver Library and to our faithful volunteers who sort, transport and sell our books.

Many thanks from your Friends Of The Oliver Library!
