Frequently Asked Questions

Can I donate to the library?

Yes, we gladly accept hardcover books, audiobooks and DVDs in good to new condition. However, we (and The Friends of the Library) do not accept:

  • dictionaries/thesauruses
  • encyclopedia volumes
  • National Geographic magazines
  • cassette tapes
  • VHS video tapes

Please bring no more than 3 shopping bags or medium sized boxes into the library per month. For larger donations, you can coordinate with The Friends of the Library directly. Please do not leave donations outside of the library when closed.

The library doesn't have the item I need. What are my options?

The ZIP book program allows you to request that we order an item for you from Amazon and have it delivered directly to your home. When you are finished with the item you return it to the library to be cataloged and added to the collection. You may also check out the item if it is available from one of our branch libraries (interbranch loan) or from the Willows Public Library (interlibrary loan).

Do you have old newspapers?

The Library has over 150 reels of microfilm for local newspapers, including the Orland News, the Orland Unit, the Orland Press Register, and the Sacramento Valley Mirror going back to 1887, and print versions dating back to 1902.

Does the library have historic photos of Orland?

Many of our local history reference materials contain historic photographs that you may scan/photocopy, however we do not have an historic photograph collection. The Alta Schmidt House Museum holds the most complete collection for the City of Orland.

Does the library hold past Orland High School yearbooks?

Not at this time.
