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)(3) organization that was established in 1989 to support library programs, events and projects like our Summer Reading initiatives and Children’s Music Garden.
