Welcome to the web site for the Oconee County Library Friends. We are a group of volunteers and supporters that provide assistance, support and increased awareness of the many wonderful resources available from the Oconee County Public Library serving Watkinsville, Georgia, and the surrounding communities.

In fulfilling our mission, we help raise money for special items and programs that are not covered in their annual budget. OCLF also works to promote community awareness of the materials, services and events available at their public library. Our non-profit organization offers programs to enrich the cultural life of our community, and strives to make the Oconee County Library a model of success.




The Friends sponsor Family Fun Day at the Oconee County Library.  Join us Saturday, May 12, as we celebrate the kick-off to the Summer Reading Program.  Crafts, games, bounce houses, petting zoo and music provided by the 'Old Goat Band'.  Free for all ages!



Fall Book Sale:  Sept. 13 - 15, 2018 at the Oconee County Civic Center

 Fall Festival:  Saturday, Oct. 20 Downtown Watkinsville

Some of the goals for our organization are as follows:

  • Assist the library in fulfilling the library's Wish List and continue to provide financial assistance for "filling in the gaps" left by public funding
  • Continue the annual Family Fun Day and getting the word out about this event so that more children and parents will be able to attend
  • Host an interesting and well-attended annual meeting and volunteer dinner each September
  • Create a long-range development plan for future programs and funding sources
  • Continue to grow our active membership
