Mission / Purpose

The mission of FOLIO is to strengthen libraries in Oklahoma through Friends of Libraries.

FOLIO proudly invests in Friends of Libraries (FOLs) and libraries by:

  • Connecting and promoting Oklahoma FOLs
  • Recognizing exemplary FOLs
  • Recognizing FOL Week activities
  • Offering Seed Grants for new FOLs
  • Offering scholarships for Oklahoma librarians
  • Developing Oklahoma’s nationally recognized Oklahoma Literary Sites
  • Providing Outreach Ambassadors to FOLs
  • Advocating for libraries
At the Governor’s Conference on Libraries in 1978, a proclamation called for a state Friends of the Library to be formed. From that proclamation came the original Board and Membership of Friends of Libraries in Oklahoma (FOLIO).
