Friends of the Library

Friends of the Pickerington Public Library (FOPPL) is made up of neighbors and community members who support Pickerington Public Library’s mission to foster a love of reading. They are a nonprofit 501(c)(4) organization that was established in 1989 to support library programs, events and projects like our Summer Reading initiatives and Children’s Music Garden.

If you’re looking for a new book and meet new friends, we invite you to visit our annual Spring and Fall book sales. Become a Friends member and enjoy an exclusive preview night before the event is open to the public. Public attendees are welcomed to become members at the door on preview nights.
