« HAPPY NEW YEAR AND WELCOME 2014 ... | Main | March Means Melrose Mania... »

January 31, 2014


The highly anticipated Dorothy Lumley Melrose Center for Technology, Innovation & Creativity will open to the public on Saturday, February 8 with a ribbon cutting at noon followed by demos and festivities throughout opening day. If you prefer an advance hands-on experience and evening of entertainment, be sure to get a ticket and attend our Preview Gala on Friday, February 7.

While the new center whisks us solidly into the future, we are also celebrating the past.
Our year-long commemoration of What the Dickens continues this month. As we reflect on the contributions of Charles Dickens, OCLS will host a special reading of Hard Times, the 1854 book that highlighted the social and economic pressures of the times. Join us at the Orlando Public Library on Saturday, January 22 at 2 p.m. as actor and former Rutgers playwriting instructor Vondell Richmond takes us back to 19th century England.

Tax season is upon us and OCLS is pleased to again offer AARP Income Tax Assistance at multiple locations beginning this month. If a refund is in your future, it only makes sense to take advantage of this free public service.

Have a great month and please accept my open invitation to explore our new high-tech center at the Orlando Public Library. You're certain to be glad you did.

Mary Anne Hodel
Library Director/CEO
