Join us for a fun and interesting evening of discussion on Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 at 5:30 p.m.  We will explore “pushing the limits of connection with “Thunderstruck” by Erik Larson while enjoying refreshments and a videotaped interview with the author.  Discussion will focus on the ways that people connect across time and across space.  We have an inherent need to reach out to others, to feel that we’ve been heard and seen, and to feel a connection with people and the larger world around us. Whether through art, technology or the restoration of land for future generations, we each find ways to “push the limits of connection”.

You can pick up a free copy of the book at the Orland Free Library or join us for the discussion even if you haven’t read the book yet!

Thank you to all of the attendees at our February program for the interesting discussion!

Rural Gateways, Pushing the Limits of Science

Informal, open discussions centered on how humans interact with science in our everyday lives, with a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Come to share ideas, food and community!

Pushing the Limits is a reading, viewing and discussion program for adults in communities served by rural libraries, made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation. The program is the work of a team of library professionals, scientists, and filmmakers from organizations including Dartmouth College, the Association for Rural and Small Libraries, the Califa Library Group, Public Library Association, Dawson Media Group, Institute for Learning Innovations, Goodman Research Group, and Oregon State University.

woodland-cake

“Woodland Forest” cake. The acorns and mushrooms were created using a candy mold and she also added fresh-picked spearmint.

Are you familiar with the library’s Zip Book program? We have been able to add some really great books to the collection thanks to the grant that allows us to order books from Amazon and ship them directly to your house so you can read them right away! One of our patrons has taken advantage of this program to request books that allowed her to expand her cake baking and decorating skills. She created this amazing cake with a “woodland forest” theme!

Call or visit the library for more information about the Zip Book program.

We have received another great donation of a piece of Orland History from Steve Halsey (thanks Dad!).  The neon sign from the old Blue Feather Ice Cream Parlor is now hanging in the Library!  We’d love to create a historical display of Orland photos taken at the parlor or from that era so if you have any photographs that you’d be willing to donate (we would also be happy to make copies from your photos if you don’t want to part with them) please let us know.  Call Jody at (530) 865-1641 or email orlandfreelibrary@yahoo.com
