Search MeLCat / Area Libraries


MeLCat has been scheduled for emergency maintenance on Tuesday, June 11 beginning at 9:00 PM. During this period, you will not be able to search or place MeLCat requests.

MeLCat allows Orion residents to request materials from a collection of over 176 libraries located throughout Michigan and have the items delivered to the Orion Library for pick-up. Some of the local libraries participating in MeLCat include Ann Arbor, Baldwin (Birmingham), Bloomfield, Canton, Rochester Hills, Southfield and West Bloomfield.

If you are not an Orion resident, MeLCat services may be available through your home library.

Due to the complex nature of the MeLCat system, it is imperative that users have JavaScript enabled in their web browsers. As of January 3, 2019, MeLCat will make it a requirement that users have JavaScript enabled in order to place MeLCat requests.

The Library Network (TLN)

Orion residents may present their Orion Library card with valid ID at any TLN member library or Troy Public Library and receive borrowing privileges.

Items checked out from a TLN Shared Catalog library may be returned to any other library within the shared system. Items from Clarkson Independence District, Rochester Hills, and Troy must be returned to their respective libraries.
