February 2015
After sending February's news, we discovered that the link to "New Fiction" in our Collection Highlights section went to the wrong list. This is the same news, with the corrected link. We apologize for the error!

Happy Birthday, OPL!

Orrville Public Library was commissioned in 1925, which means this year marks our 90th anniversary! We have all sorts of family-friendly celebration plans in the works for later this year, so keep an eye on our website, press releases and the newsletter so you won't miss out on all the fun!

We Read!
The Celebration is Complete!
We successfully completed last year's celebration of the Orrville sesquicentennial by rounding up 150 of YOUR favorite family titles and our album is complete! You can take a look at the full collection of photos and book titles on our Pinterest page. Our appreciation goes to the Rotary Club of Orrville and the Orrville Public Library Friends for supporting this program. We had a lot of fun last year gathering all your favorite book titles and seeing all your friendly faces!

Did You Know?
We have expanded our selection of PLAYAWAY titles. PLAYAWAYS are self-contained digital audio books that you can easily take along with you anywhere. Thanks to a generous donation from Bobby Knight, given in memory to the Hazel Knight & Sarah Henthorne Memorial Fund, these new items are now available. Come by and check them out!
