Orion Center

For a slower pace and a smaller venue, the Orion Center houses a library branch that caters to senior citizens.  There are over 1,000 Large Print books, 200 audio books, and a “Put & Take” collection of paperback books that does not require the use of a library card.  There are also four computers with internet access for patron use.

Computer Classes @ the Orion Center

A variety of computer classes are offered for seniors, from beginner level to intermediate.  Learn how to get an email address, surf the internet, play online games, and more.  Please contact Delores @the Orion Center at 248-693-6840 for more information and to register for a class.
