Love your library this month...
It's February and that means Valentine's Day. In addition to several library programs that celebrate the holiday, we have many more reasons to love your library this month. Tax season is officially upon us and we have Tax Tips programs offered at four branch libraries this month. And as a public service, we will be offering free income tax preparation assistance through AARP at multiple library locations again this year.
E-books are all the rage and that includes at OCLS. Enter Freading, a new way to enjoy e-books from the Orange County Library System. Freading offers thousands of titles from all genres without the worry of late fees. This month also brings the library's e-book Publishing Series, a special eight-week interactive workshop to help authors with self-publishing their work.
The library's Step Off Competition takes to the stage this month as well. Now in its seventh year, the annual event offers high-energy, high-powered thrills as elementary, middle and high schools students step things up in an always fun and sometimes daring dance competition. Happy February and hope to see you there!
