The goals of the Oxnard Friends of the Library Foundation are to support the Oxnard Public Library by raising funds to benefit the Library and its patrons, and to increase community awareness of the Library. To accomplish these goals, funds are earned by selling donated books, operating a gift shop in the library and other appropriate activities. These funds, earned entirely by volunteers, will be used to supplement the Oxnard Public Library budget to purchase equipment, books, and audio-visual materials. The funds will also be used to sponsor and/or supplement library projects and events for both children and adults in the Oxnard community. Oxnard Friends of the Library Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit California Corporation.
