Winter Holidays

The holidays can be a hectic time of year, but we want to help relieve the stress by offering fun, informative events for the whole family. Bring the kids in for Cookie Decorating, learn how to sew a festive holiday stocking or stop by a Cuisine Corner event to learn how to prepare easy holiday meals.

On a budget this holiday season? Take advantage of the library to check out your favorite holiday family film or stream music over your mobile device with hoopla or Freegal Music—all for free with your library card.

Happy Holidays from the Orange County Library System!
