Library Updates

Improved Search Function in Our Catalog

So you're in our catalog, looking for a good book, and while you're at it you'd like to know what else is out there. Maybe the same genre, maybe the similar writer. Our catalog now features a new look and functionality so you can do just that. Start by selecting an item in the catalog. Once there, keep scrolling to find out all the books in that series (and which ones we have at the library) as well as other books, authors and series you may find of interest. And if you have any questions any step along the way, give us a call at 919.245.2525 or come to a service desk and ask for help. We love to help folks find a good book! See what we're talking about here

Calling All Authors

If you're an author who lives in Orange County and wants some additional exposure, consider submitting your work for inclusion in the Hillsborough Chamber's Holiday House Tour, "Books by Candlelight." Both the library and the Friends of the Orange County Public Library are pitching in to help. Why? Because we love authors, love supporting local business and the Friends get a portion of the net proceeds. Read more here
