College Bound & Thanksgiving!
Welcome to November at the Orange County Library System. This month our special College Bound program series continues as we present The Gates Millennium Scholarship on Saturday, November 24 at the Orlando Public Library. Students and parents are invited to come learn about this scholarship program that awards 1,000 high school seniors each year with a good-through-graduation scholarship for the college or university of their choice.
The holidays are just around the corner and now is the time to stock up on stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for friends and family. Gifts & Greetings on the first floor of the Orlando Public Library features greeting cards for all occasions plus distinctive jewelry and accessories, office supplies, magnets and more. Check it out next time you're at our downtown location. You'll find affordable gifts and support the Friends of the Library at the same time.
Also in the spirit of the season, LuAnn Duncan from the University of Florida IFAS Extension will share tips for a terrific Thanksgiving Dinner at two library locations this month. Learn helpful hints for your best Thanksgiving ever and kick this special season off in style. As a reminder, the Orange County Library System will be closed for the holiday on Thursday, November 22 and Friday, November 23. Happy Thanksgiving!
