New Computer Area Layout

On the 2nd floor of the Main Library, we have computers, printers, and copiers -- all the tools you need to get work done! Over the last couple of weeks, we've made some changes to the layout of our public computer terminal area. The changes allow customers who need to quickly print out something or access email to do so. Read more here.

Summer Learning: The Grown-up Edition

EXTENDED UNTIL AUGUST 17! Summer Challenge for Adults

Summer is a great time to read. Well, to be honest, anytime is a great time to read. However, summers at libraries include special reading challenges and typically those challenges are kid-focused. At the Orange County Public Library we have expanded our challenges to include adults. Drop by any of our locations and sign up to participate in our Summer Learning Challenge for adults. 
The challenge has 3 levels with prizes at each level. Prizes include notebooks, t-shirts, and a Kindle Fire. Tasks include reading, coming to library events, tagging the library on social media and more. Download the instructions and task list here
