Support OC Public Libraries


Donate Now

Your gift does make a difference! Your tax deductible donations support your library now and in the future by helping to build collections of books, DVDs, audio books and other materials, by providing special programs, and by enhancing our branch equipment.

Why donate to your tax-supported library? Our communities have many needs and resources are scarce. Your donations enhance the quality of the library.

OC Public Libraries thanks you for your support. We guarantee that your gift will be used to benefit library visitors and the community. If you have questions, please contact the Assistant County Librarian, at 714-566-3000 or




Friends of the Library

The Friends of the OC Public Libraries are volunteers who are interested in promoting the library to the community, enriching resources, providing legislative support, and sponsoring cultural programs. Funds raised by the Friends support children’s programs among other projects. Visit one of the Friends’ Used Bookstores and shop for hardbacks, paperbacks, and other materials. For Friends of the Library membership or bookstore volunteer information, please inquire at your local branch library.




OCPL Foundation

The Foundation is organized for the purposes of expanding the resources of OC Public Libraries and for generating support for the ongoing transformation into libraries of the future. The Foundation exists independently of OC Public Libraries and is separate from the Friends of the Library organizations.  It is not an umbrella Friends of the Library organization and it is not meant to compete with these organizations. The Foundation focuses on system-wide projects and is a vehicle for generating funding and support for projects that will benefit the entire library system.
