The Orion Library is excited to announce several new services designed to meet your informational and entertainment needs in the safest way possible.
We are excited to announce we have begun offering automatic renewals! Materials that are eligible for a renewal will be automatically renewed at the time that they are due, if there are no holds on the items and the renewal limit has not been met. The renewal limit will still be two per eligible item.
Book Bundles are librarian curated collections of library material on any topic or genre of your choosing, available for all ages in bundles of up to 10 items. Materials available for bundling include books, audiobooks, DVDs, and music CDs.
