Summer Quarterly Cover
05/13/2019
By Nicole

Summer is by far the busiest time of year at the Delaware County District Library. Why? Because from May 31 through July 28 we host our annual Summer Reading Club! This year's theme is "A Universe of Stories." We will blast off into space and explore the science of our solar system, while we also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing!

Playground Tree Drawing

By Linda Wesner

You do not have to look far to see traces of the past in Delaware County. Local artist Linda Wesner continues her search for landscapes threatened by new development.

“Since I moved here in 2003,” she says, “so many farms and fields have disappeared. I never leave home without my camera so I can take reference photos for future artwork.”

Find out more at her presentation “Disappearing Landmarks of Delaware County” on Thursday, May 2, 2019, 7:00 PM, at the Orange Branch of the Delaware County District Library, 7171 Gooding Boulevard.

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
11/09/2018
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
