Youth Services

We’re excited to announce several new services designed to meet your informational and entertainment needs in the safest way possible.

With a valid Orion Library card, you have 24 / 7 access to a variety of subscription online resources, including multiple services offering downloadable / streaming ebooks, audiobooks, comics, magazines, movies, and TV shows.

Orion ThinkLink is a partnership between the Orion Library and Lake Orion Community Schools with the mission of developing programs, activities, and events that encourage reading, advocate the completion of school assignments, promote scholarship, and provide the best possible chance of overall academic success.
