A picture says a thousand words, but all yours needs to say is "I LOVE OCLS."

Florida Library Snapshot Day – Customer Comments:
Every Tuesday I walk my 2-year-old daughter and son to hear story time. They enjoy listening and singing along. It brings us closer. Kandy - Washington Park Branch
I’m retired and the availability of DVDs and books to borrow adds significantly to my quality of life. Patron - Alafaya Branch
It provides a creative place to refresh. The staff is so friendly and helpful. It feels like I’ve got library “friends” who ask about the family, offer suggestions to books or movies I might like. This library is like a refuge to me. Linda – West Oaks Branch
The Orange County Library System is amazing. The features that they offer from new DVD releases to home delivery on books and music CDs and documentary DVDs is great. The staff always goes far above and exceeds expectations on a daily level. Vanessa – West Oaks Branch
I am grateful to have access to the public library because I use it for research, self-improvement, entertainment (books, movies, CDs) and to learn about events/activities going on in the Orlando/Orange County area. This library offers way more resources than other libraries I’ve been a part of. Charlene - Edgewater Branch
