Library activity happens every day throughout Orange County. Members of the library's community engagement team attend meetings and events, serve on the boards local non-profits, and collaborate with government, business and school communities. What we learn from those interactions helps to inform our library's services, collections and programs. For more information, email Libbie Hough, MSW, Communications Manager at the Orange County Public Library.
