Santa Storytime!

We are only one week away until Santa visits the Orland Free Library!Santa

Santa himself will share stories and share some Christmas Magic. Santa Storytime will engage children of all ages and give our smaller audience members a time to warm up to this larger than life character. After some fun reading and songs, Santa will stay to meet everyone. It’s a great time to give Santa letters, tell him wish lists and, of course, take lots of pictures!

Do you know a baby who likes to have fun? baby

The Orland Free Library has a storytime created just for infants and toddlers. It begins on Thursday December 4th at 11 a.m.

Come and enjoy songs, bounces, and tickles with your little one every Thursday. We will share board books, interact with puppets, and meet with other parents and babies. All infants and toddlers from newborn to about two and a half years old are welcome.

The program lasts for about a half hour, and is flexible and fun. It is designed to be a “lapsit” program for moms and dads and their little ones, where they can share activities and stimulate those busy little brain cells.

Babies love meeting other babies, so bring your special baby to socialize with other little ones. There’s something for everyone, even babies, at the library!

Friends Book Sale

A Project of the Friends of the Orland Free Library

You still have a chance to display your name or message permanently in a lovely display at the Orland Free Library.  There are still 44 leaves left to purchase. The first 24 leaves are now being engraved and will be mounted when completed. The Friends thank Mr. Halsey who mounted the leaves on the Donor Tree. The tree was designed by Vic Russell (Corvallis, OR) and carved by John Zuppan.

Purchase a leaf from the donor tree and your name, love one’s name, or even a short message will be engraved on leaf as part of the Donor Recognition Tree.

This tree will have beautiful leaves in copper, silver and gold and will be placed near the entrance to the library for the community to enjoy. Each leaf will designate those who have so generously gifted to the campaign. The leaves also make wonderful memorials to loved ones.
