A lot has changed in Orlando over the last hundred years, but one constant has been the Orange County Library System (Website).

From its humble beginnings as the two-story Albertson Public Library, OCLS has grown into one of the more impressive public library systems in the country, offering award-winning public library services at 15 locations across the County.

To mark this significant milestone, Orange County Library System is planning a year of celebratory events, beginning with the 100-Year Celebration Kickoff taking place on January 7 at the Orlando Public Library.

From 10:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., visitors can rediscover OCLS with a rededication ceremony, photographic retrospective, a musical performance from the Z Street Speakeasy Band (with non-alcoholic craft cocktails provided by our friends at The Band Box (Website), and a host of exhibitions and demonstrations of some of the library’s unparalleled services and resources.

The full schedule for the event can be found on the library’s website.

Back in October, Orange County Library System set the stage for this momentous occasion by
announcing their move to suspend late fines and cancel all existing overdue charges. You can read more about the announcement HERE.
