About the Friends

The Friends of the Crook County Library is a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership corporation established in 1997.  The purpose of the corporation is to enhance the programs, services and materials of the Crook County Library through public awareness, cultural programs, and private funding.

Our bylaws and an About the Friends document are available online. You can also learn more about the Friends on our Facebook page.


Join the Friends of the Library today! You can become a FOL member by submitting this Membership Form (non-fillable PDF) along with the requested annual membership dues to the library check-out counter, or mail it to FOL, PO Box 861, Prineville OR 97754.

Your annual dues strengthen and expand library services and activities, sponsor summer reading programs for teens and adults, and supplement county funding, allowing for special services and materials that might not otherwise be possible.

If you'd like to provide additional support for the Friends, you can help us by donating books using the drop box in the library lobby, volunteering, or making a donation. A Planned Giving information sheet is available online. All dues and donations are tax deductible; our Federal Tax Identification Number (TIN) is 931114660.

The board of directors and members meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 4:30 pm in the Juniper Room at the Library; the public is also welcome! Check our calendar to confirm dates and times of upcoming FOL board meetings.
