Thank you Delaware for helping us to celebrate the opening of the Delaware County District Library’s Orange Branch. The Open House was a huge success, with more than 1000 visitors enjoying the activity and excitement of the ribbon cutting ceremony and tours the splendid new facility. Since the Orange Branch opened on Sunday, May 15th, it has been a busy place. You have check out 8340 books, DVDs, audio books and magazines, and more than 900 residents signed up for Library cards, proving that old expression, “If you build it, they will come.”
The hours for the Orange Branch are the same as the Main Library and the Powell Branch: Monday-Thursday 9:00-9:00; Friday 9:00-6:00; Saturday 9:00-5:00; and Sunday 12:00-5:00. Thanks to the passage of the Library levy in 2009, we were able add hours last year to give you more time to visit the Library.
When you visit the Orange Branch (I hope you visit often) don’t forget to stop by the coffee shop located in the lobby. Call “the java box,” the café serves a variety of gourmet coffee, cappuccino, latte, and other hot beverages , with each cup instantly ground & brewed from premium selected beans.
You can get a tasty muffin to go with your coffee, or a hearty lunch. The menu includes paninis, quesadillas, sandwiches and salads. (Remember: Drinks with lids are permitted in the Library but please keep food items in the lobby area.) Are you a Friend of the Library? If you are, you get a 20% discount off your purchase at thejavabox, too!
If you haven’t stopped the new Orange Branch, I hope you’ll plan a visit soon. The building is spectacular, the customer service is excellent, and the coffee is wonderful!
