Happy Birthday, OPL!
Orrville Public Library was commissioned in 1925, which means this year marks our 90th anniversary! In April, in conjunction with National Library Week, we have all sorts of family-friendly celebrations coming! Keep an eye on our website, press releases and the newsletter so you won't miss out!
