Join us for a fun and interesting evening of discussion on Monday, July 30, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.  We will explore the theme of “Motion” while discussing “The Martian” by Andy Weir.  Come to share ideas, food, and community!

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.book club martian

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.


We do not have Passport Club, Preschool Storytime, or a Thursday activity this week, but take a look at all of the fun stuff up ahead at the Orland Free Library!july2018_Page_1

We would like to extend a BIG thank you to the Friends of the Orland Free Library for supporting the Summer Reading Program by sponsoring this event.  For ten years they have funded the Conservation Ambassadors Wild Things live animal show so children and families in our community can have a fun and educational experience!

Thank you to Rebecca Malin for photos!


Beginning July 7th, 2018 the Library will be open on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The City Council has responded to your requests and approved Saturday hours in the library budget for July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019 that will allow the library to expand free access to books and materials, public computers and wifi, programs and events, and much more!

Continuing the Saturday hours past that date may be contingent on two things: usage and increased funding from the Glenn County Board of Supervisors.  So if you’d like the library to continue offering the Saturday hours make sure to visit the library and check out items on Saturdays and contact your local supervisor (not sure who that is? find out here) and ask for increased funding for the library.
