The Friends of the Orange Coast College Library is a non-profit organization whose purpose is "to intensify community awareness and use of the library, to sponsor programs designed to add to the cultural life of the community, to aid in public relations by communicating needs of the community to the library, to raise funds for enlarging the library collection, and to encourage gifts, endowments, and memorials for the library." The Friends have programs, book sales, and other activities throughout the year, distribute a newsletter, and fund an annual scholarship.
