Celebrating its 90th birthday this month is the Orange County Public Library system. Founded August 1, 1921, when the system shared an office with the County Farm Advisor, it has now become the third largest library system in California with 34 branches throughout the county. The libraries provide 2.5 million print, eAudio, eBooks, newspapers, magazines, CDs, DVDs, copies of sheet music and historical images to its patrons. Branches across Orange County are doing different things to celebrate the birthday.
San Clemente’s branch has put up a giant picture of a cake. Patrons can write on a candle-shaped piece of paper what they love about the library or add their birthday wishes. The candles will decorate the display.
For each candle filled out, library-goers will receive a coupon for Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt or San Clemente Yogurt while supplies last. Library staff expects to be able to keep giving out the coupons throughout the month.
The libraries will be launching the Overdue Fines Amnesty Program. The week of September 12 to18 will be Amnesty Week, in which patrons can return overdue items and clear their debts.
