The Friends of the Osterhout Free Library recently donated $32,000 to the library. The Friends raised the majority of the funds via their annual book sale held in late June on the patio of the Osterhout Free Library, plus funds raised yearlong via the Friends Book Shop and book sales at the circulation desk. The funds provide materials and programs the library could not otherwise offer. In the last 42 years, the Friends have donated over $502,000 to the Osterhout Library from funds raised at the annual book sale.
