3d printer

Caitlin and Jody learning how to use the 3D printer.

Here at the Orland Library we are all about bringing new technologies and information to the community! A virtual reality system (to promote immersive learning experiences) will soon be available at the Library and while we work on getting that set up we are also learning how to use a 3D printer with the hopes of bringing access to 3D printing to our patrons next!

Which other new technology would you like to learn about or have access to at the Library? Let us know in the comments…

Library Vintage Signs Donation

The Library receives some really great donations from our community- and not all of them are books! Check out these neat images of Orland landmarks and vintage library signs now on display at the Library. I believe the vintage tin signs were found in the Sharpsteen family barn (Tom Sharpsteen and the Orlandos were the featured entertainment for decades of Friends of the Library Ice cream Social fundraisers). If you know anything about where the other pictures come from please let us know in the comments.

Cowboy Poet Larry Maurice 2

Thank you to Larry Maurice, Poets & Writers of California, the James Irvine Foundation, the Hearst Foundation, the Friends of the Orland Free Library, and all of the attendees at the last night’s performance for a wonderful evening of cowboy poetry! If you weren’t able to attend you can still enjoy Larry’s poetry by checking out the copy of his book “Rhyme Riders Trail” that he generously donated to the Library.
