The Holidays Are Here!

With the holiday season now in full swing, it is my pleasure to wish you the best and invite you to celebrate this festive time of year with the Orange County Library System. There are many opportunities to do so!

Start off the month by getting a jump start on holiday preparations. Join us for special workshop and learn how to make your own wrapping paper and greeting cards for friends and family. It’s happening Saturday, December 1 at 2 p.m. at the Herndon Branch.

Or get in the spirit of the season by taking in a performance of that holiday favorite, The Nutcracker, at the Orlando Public Library on Saturday, December 1 at 3 p.m. This performance will be brought to you by the Windermere Ballet Theater.

Speaking of swing, The Escorts take to the Library Central Stage on Saturday, December 8 at 10 a.m. This holiday concert features a swingin’ Big Band with full horn and rhythm sections pumping out favorites from legendary Big Band leaders like Glen Miller, Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey. Also on December 8, there’s a Holiday Handbell Concert at the Winter Garden Branch at 2 p.m. This concert and all of the above events are free and everyone is invited!

Wrap up the year with a treat for the little ones. Join us for the second annual Character Breakfast on Sunday, December 30 at 10 a.m. at the Orlando Public Library and break bread with some of your favorite literary characters. Tickets are just $5 each for children $10 for adults.

May your holiday season and the New Year be filled with much joy, happiness and success. The Orange County Library System looks forward to continuing to serve you in 2008 and beyond.
