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.

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.

 

The Library will be closed on Monday, January 30, 2017 for staff training.  Normal open hours will resume Tuesday, Jan 31st.

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
