The Orange County Library System announced today the cancellation of all library-sponsored events and programs scheduled from March 14 through March 31. Sadly, this includes the Orlando Book Festival scheduled for this weekend.
At publication time, core library services remain available during regular hours. However, "camps, classes, events, programs, staff-assisted studio sessions, tours, library pop-ups and outreach events" will not take place. Online classes
will continue as scheduled.
Also continuing: early voting
and Census 2020 tabling
at various library branches (click links for details).
Those in quarantine (whether medically advised or self-imposed) would do well to remember OCLS' generous bounty of digital offerings for cardholders, including ebooks and audiobooks, live online classes, streaming TV and movies, music downloads, databases, digital magazines and more. (We at Orlando Weekly
are especially enamored of the five free Kanopy views available every month to OCLS cardholders.)
