About the Branch

The Alafaya Branch has a long history of providing library services to the East Orange County community. The branch originally opened in 1965 as the Azalea Park branch, situated on Lake Barton Road. From the 1970s through the 1990s the branch provided library services from shopping center locations. Ground was broken in January 1999 for a new branch, designed to be the prototype branch for future Orange County Library System branches. Opened on February 1, 2000, the Alafaya branch was funded by a Florida Library Construction Grant.

Permanent Artwork

A unique art display at Alafaya is the bronze casting of Florida's sandhill crane and accompanying fish, a beautiful tribute to Florida wildlife. The sculpture is displayed in our reading area. Aptly named "Food Chain," the artist Carl Wagner won Best in Show for this piece at Fiesta in the Park, 1996.
