About the Library
The Library is operated independently and is not an ORHA organization and receives no funding from ORHA or Oak Run Associates, Ltd.

The Library at Oak Run is the best retirement community private library in the area. Your FREE library card entitles you to borrow books, puzzles, newly released DVD movies (at a small fee per day) and a large selection of two week DVD's. Get your card today!

The Library is managed by the Friends of the Library Board. Its operation depends upon your support of the monthly Saturday Night at the Movies, the Book Sales during the Donut Drop-Ins and on fees for newly released DVD movies.

The Library is run entirely by volunteers. Volunteers are needed in many areas and may also work as Librarians.  Librarian are on duty for 3 hours every other week. New volunteers will be trained and start as substitutes. Sign up to volunteer in the Library.
