Don’t forget the Halloween Parade starts right next door to the Library (in case of rain go directly to the fairgrounds for the festivities) at 6:00 p.m. ¬†Stop in to trick-or-treat at the Library before the parade starts- we have lots of fun treats including candy, bookmarks, and pencils!

Garamendi Honors Carolyn Denton, Jody Halsey Meza, and Christine Stifter at His Annual Women of the Year Awards

It was an honor to receive this award but everything that has been accomplished for the libraries couldn’t have been done without the help and support of the amazing staff, volunteers, and patrons in Orland, Willows, Bayliss, and Elk Creek.
Congratulations to Christine Stifter and Carolyn Denton, the other two Glenn County/Orland recipients. I know I will continue to be inspired by all of the work they have done for the community! – Jody Halsey Meza, City Librarian

2016 Women of the Year Awards

Thank you to the Orland Rotary Club for their generous donation to the Orland Free Library!  Every year the Club donates money to the Library for the purchase of new books in honor of their speakers.  Check out the new books coming to the Library soon and take a peek in the inside cover and you may find a bookplate that honors someone you know!


One of our favorite events is coming to Library Park! ¬†This Saturday, Oct. 1st, you can check out all of the cool cars from 8am-2pm. ¬†Car entry fee is $10 and it’s free for the public. ¬†For more info, call (530) 865-2311

We’ve posted about the show before, check out this link to see some of the cars from past shows.

My car is undergoing some minor repairs at the moment but even if it’s not ready I will still be there to check out all of the great cars! ¬†Anybody else planning to attend and/or enter your car?
