National Friends of Libraries Week is October 21-27. The celebration offers a two-fold opportunity: (1) to celebrate Friends: creatively promote Friends in the community, to raise awareness, and to promote membership, and (2) to reward Friends: an excellent opportunity for library and Board of Trustees to recognize the Friends for their help and support of the library. The 2017 winners ($200.00 each) were Friends of McCloud Library and Friends of Southwest Oklahoma City Library.

At the Governor’s Conference on Libraries in 1978, a proclamation called for a state Friends of the Library to be formed. From that Proclamation came the original Board and Membership of Friends of Libraries in Oklahoma (FOLIO).
