Rotary donation 1

City Librarian accepts donation from the Orland Rotary Club members

The Orland Rotary Club donates funds for the purchase of new books in honor of the speakers at their weekly meetings.   These donations have allowed the library to add many new books to the collection.   The Library generally selects books that are relevant to the speaker’s vocation or background and will also be beneficial to the community.

Farms with a Future

One of the books recently purchased in honor of speakers Luke Reimers and Lisa Humphries of the Glenn County Farm Bureau, “Farms With A Future”, actually features a chapter about Massa Organics, which is owned by a Glenn County family.

Former president Barack Obama tweeted this quote by Nelson Mandela in reaction to the violence in Charlottesville:
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or religion.”
“People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught how to love.”
“For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
The library staff stand against racism and hate and are here to promote understanding and compassion in our community and believe that access to the Library’s collection and reading are one way to help people learn empathy and “be taught how to love”.
These are just a few of the recommended books about race and racism that are available at the Orland Free Library:
