People participating in the Human Library event

The Orange Branch Library is seeking adults willing to participate and share their stories as human “books” for the second annual Human Library event. Our hope is that open and honest conversation will allow for those involved to have a deeper understanding of others within our shared community. 

New Check it Out Design
By Nicole

It's been many months in the process, but we are happy to officially unveil the new re-design of the quarterly "Check It Out" newsletter! This new design was created completely with our patrons in mind. It groups programs by age and subject, rather than location; includes program descriptions so you have everything you need all in one place; has a special place dedicated to what our Friends of the Library are doing; includes programs out in the community by our Community & Family Outreach Services Department; highlights our online resources; and gives great book recommendations in a staff review.

Thank You

Thank you, voters!

Hi, my name is Luke. I’m an Adult Services Specialist at the Library’s Orange Branch. I’m a self-admitted geek. I geek (among other things) films of all sorts and varieties. I love movies that are “so bad they’re good,” classy prestige films, monster movies, and just about anything and everything that is different, weird, creepy, fun, or just plain interesting.
