The Friends Of The Oliver Library (FOTOL) is an independent, non-profit organization whose purpose includes focusing public attention on our local Library and its needs. We also raise funds to supplement and/or enhance available funding to make our Library a place of great pride in our community. Meet some great people while promoting the use of the library’s resources and services, fundraising to provide extra dollars for value-added programs, services, and materials and encouraging gifts to the Oliver Library.

The OK Gleaners produce mainly dried soup mix from donated surplus vegetables to feed the hungry of the world. Individuals and families are invited to drop-in and help any morning, Monday through Saturday, from 8:30am-Noon. Working at Gleaners is a great experience for families with children, 8 years and older. Okanagan Gleaners is 100% donor and volunteer driven. Our work continues year-round, depending on the availability of fresh or frozen vegetables and fruit. May to November is our peak period when the harvests are overflowing in the Okanagan Valley.
