In the absence of Week of Giving, we are inviting you to continue your generous support during National Library Week, April 23-29. Eight years ago, ORLA was founded with a dream of uniting all three Venango County libraries to offer and preserve quality services across our region. ORLA seeks to continue enhancing cooperation, creativity and generous community spirit through our new Founders Fund.

When you give to the Founders Fund you are supporting:

  • 1 library across 3 communities – Oil City, Franklin & Cooperstown – Experience the same quality service at any location to access over 150,000 shared items. Pick up and drop off at any location with most resources provided free of charge and no late fees. In the future, we seek to become more involved within our region via a travelling bookmobile.
  • Community Centers – We are centers of wit, insight and collective wisdom. In an average year, your libraries offer approximately 1,000 free educational and community programs.
  • Centers of Democracy – In a polarized world, drown out the noise by researching ideas on your own through accessible resources representing views from all sides of the aisle.
HELP US REACH OUR GOAL!$9,660$14,000

Thanks to the support of the ORLA Board, ORLA Committee members and the Oil City and Franklin Friends groups, there are matching funds that will allow for all donations to receive a partial match

Donate using the green button above, or in person at your library! Please make all checks payable to: ORLA, 2 Central Ave. Oil City, PA 16301. 

We thank you in advance for your support! You are helping to maintain ORLA’s status as your community centers throughout our county while paving the way for future growth and development.
