North Orange Branch 30th Anniversary

My name is Maritza Alicea and I am proud to serve our community as Branch Manager at your North Orange Branch. The library’s staff and I are excited to invite you to the branch’s 30th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, May 25 at 11 a.m. We will have many interactive and fun events for all our customers such as Music in the Library, crafts, virtual games and face painting for children. This will be a special time to celebrate the history of the North Orange Branch with our friends. 

This branch began as a bookmobile station in 1950 and was replaced by a branch in 1964. In May 1989 the branch moved to its current location, serving Apopka, Plymouth, Zellwood, Tangerine and surrounding areas. 

The North Orange Branch offers outstanding programming including weekly story times for children from birth to preschool; programs for school-age children and adults; and a variety of technology classes for everyone. We provide our customers the opportunity to immerse themselves in lifelong learning, whether it be through cooking demonstrations, books, audiobooks, online resources, virtual databases or attending an event. In addition, the Orange County Library System (OCLS) offers free Wi-Fi, public computer usage, printing, scanning and fax services and home delivery of materials. 

We strive to meet the needs of our diverse community with information and services including English, Spanish and literacy classes to help families meet their educational goals. OCLS has extended its resources by providing a social worker every Monday and The Florida Licensing on Wheels event once a month. We help bring the community together to learn, grow, connect.

We believe in an environment that provides outstanding customer service and treating each customer as our hero. We focus on building relationships, making connections and changing lives. Thank you for the last 30 years. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, May 25.
