City Librarian, Jody Halsey Meza, and the Donor Recognition Tree at the Orland Free Library

Looking for a unique and creative gift? The Library has a donor recognition tree with copper, silver, and gold level leaves that can be engraved with any name or message that you choose. They are a permanent and beautiful way to honor the special people in your life and at the same time make a contribution to library services that support the community. (And thank you to all of the generous donors who have already purchased leaves!)
Print the form below or call the library, 865-1640, and ask for Jody and I will be happy to mail you a copy.

We’re doing our best to fill the Toys for Tots box in the Library but there is still plenty of room for more toys! Help us fill the box by bringing in a gift the next time you visit the library.
Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas.

City Librarian, Jody Halsey Meza in the Orland Free Library community room

Did you know that the Orland Free Library has a meeting room that is available for free use by the public?

Thanks to the Friends of the Orland Free Library fundraisers and City of Orland library impact fees a library addition was built several years ago that included a great space that is used for all kinds of interesting and educational activities for kids and adults.


Puppet Show in the Orland Free Library community room

Classes and tutoring, author talks, children’s programs and puppet shows have all been offered in the community room. Local groups and clubs are also welcome to utilize the room.

Two glass double doors lead from the room to a patio area so the outdoors park space can also be enjoyed while using the room.

Please see the policy for room use if you are interested in reserving the space.
