Celebrate Black History Month with Us!
Hard to believe it's already February which is also Black History Month. In celebration of the occasion, the Orange County Library System has a lively agenda of programs and performances lined up. Explore the wide array of Black History Month events being offered across the library.
February also marks the seventh year that the Orlando Public Library will serve as a venue for ArtsFest. Highlights include a performance by the International Folk Dance Ensemble and a demonstration by the Orlando Youth Circus. View a complete listing of ArtsFest events.
If you're looking to step things up a bit, be sure to check out the 5th Annual Step Off Competition at the Orlando Public Library on Saturday, February 27 at 2 p.m. Local middle and high school students will put their best foot forward in a battle to be crowned the top step team around. Plus, the Power 95.3 Power Playas will be on hand to emcee and DJ the event with today's hottest jams.
For a short month, February packs in a lot of celebrating! It's also Love Your Library Month. I hope you'll discover many great reasons to love your library - not just in February but all year round.
