Friends of the Library

About Friends of the Library

Friends of the Library (FOL) is a membership-based organization founded in 2003 that supports the Chambers Library and its mission to serve as the intellectual and cultural hub of the UCO campus. This is accomplished through contributions, gifts, and fundraisers that help fund library programs, activities, collections, and resources.
