The Friends of the Chiloquin Library (FOCL) was organized in March of 1980, as a group of volunteers whose primary function was to raise funds in support the library. One of their most recent contributions to the library was the colorful new rug for the Children's Library, pictured above.

The group remains very active and, in partnership with Chiloquin Visions in Progress , was a driving force in raising funds for the construction of the Chiloquin Community Center . The new Center, which opened in June of 2004, now houses the library, a gallery with workshops and classrooms, meeting rooms available for community needs, and offices providing social services.
