During National Library Week, April 7-13, we are inviting you to continue your generous support for your libraries. Nine 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 are seeking to further expand our county-wide footprint by directly serving all Venango County residents.
  • Community Centers – We are centers of wit, insight and collective wisdom. In an average year, your libraries offer over 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 reputable resources representing views from all sides of the aisle.
HELP US REACH OUR GOAL!$5,050$14,000

Thanks to the support of the ORLA Board and the Oil City and Franklin Friends groups, there are matching funds that will boost all donations! 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.
