Perfect Christmas Gifts





Looking for the perfect Christmas gift? Orange City Library has the answer.  Come and see our selection of  local books on sale. Many of the titles are useful for family historians and researchers and they make fantastic gifts. One of the most popular titles is called A Vision Splendid $39.95. It is also a great souvenir for those who have visited Orange and want a keepsake coffee table book. Orange City Library is open on Christmas Eve from 9am until 2pm – so you still have time to call in before Christmas.
