President of the Friends Council

On behalf of the Friends of the Library, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our LibGuide.  Founded in 1996, the Friends support the library and the Otterbein family which includes students, faculty and administration.

We are excited to continue this journey of collaboration by offering new avenues to support the library and its constituents through a new Textbook Affordability Endowment, and by establishing new partnerships with other campus and Westerville community organizations. The Friends sponsor awards for student workers at the library, host talks by the Common Book authors for members, and sponsor a bookmark design contest. Due to COVID19, we have been unable to have in person meetings but have tried to have internet meetings when possible.  We hope in the future to be able to meet physically rather than virtually.

We invite you to explore this guide to get to know the Friends and what we do to be of service to the Courtright Memorial Library. We also invite any of you who might be interested to become a member of the Friends of the Library and/or contribute to the Textbook Affordability Endowment.


Margaret Doone, President of the Friends of the Library Council
