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.
