8820 Greenback Lane, Suite L, Orangevale, CA 95662
Located in a small shopping center on the south side of Greenback Lane, just west of Hazel Avenue and east of Beech Avenue this 4,320 square foot library is cozy and inviting. The library provides popular adult reading and children’s materials to the citizens of Orangevale and is an integral part of that community.
The town of Orange Vale was founded in 1888 as a new development for farms and orchards and has had a library since 1912. Today, the people of Orangevale take pride in preserving a quiet, rural quality of life, even though the population has grown to over 30,000.
The library now holds over 34,000 items such as videos, books-on-tape, music and books on CDs, CD-ROMs for children, large-print books, periodicals, and some materials in Spanish. In addition, there are library catalogs with useful and interesting databases, public Internet terminals, and word processors. Children’s programs are presented monthly.
The Orangevale Library has an active support group in the Friends Affiliate of the Orangevale Library. The Friends sponsor programs for adults and children, purchase materials for the library through funding from book sales and other events as well as acting as representatives of the library to the community and for the community to the library.
