Friends of the Oshawa Public Library

Our purpose is to promote and enhance the services provided by the Oshawa Public Libraries through activities involving fundraising, advocacy, and our volunteers.


Thank you to everyone who made the Spring 2024 Book Sale a success!

2024 Giant Fall Book Sale Dates:

October 3 - 5



The Friends of the Library operates used book sales usually twice a year in the auditorium of the McLaughlin branch. Upcoming sales will be posted on the library website.

Throughout the year, a selection of used books and magazines for sale can be found at all four branches. Customers can choose a book and donate to the Library through the Friends. No contribution is too small!


Donating Books to the Friends of the Library

Book donations can be dropped off at the south Shipping and Receiving entrance of the McLaughlin Branch (65 Bagot St.) during regular business hours.
The Shipping and Receiving doors are locked. Please use the call button so staff can remotely unlock the door, giving you to access the dedicated donations shelving.

Thank you for your interest in the Friends of the Library. This page will be updated when new volunteer opportunities become available.
