FOLIO Friends of Libraries Week Award applications are due by 6:00 p.m. Nov. 16, 2018.
National Friends of Libraries Week was October 21-27. The celebration offered 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.

The mission of FOLIO is to strengthen libraries in Oklahoma through Friends of Libraries.

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).
