The Orange County Library System has canceled all library-sponsored events and programs throughout May.

According to a press release, the decision was made in accordance with the county's directive to halt all non-essential services and to protect the health and well-being of staff and guests.

These cancellations include classes, events, camps, programs, staff-assisted studio sessions, tours and outreach events. However, library cardholders still have access to digital resources such as ebooks, audiobooks, music downloads, databases, digital magazines, streaming TV and movies, live online classes and more.

OCLS has a wide variety of digital offerings for library cardholders, including ebooks and audiobooks, live online classes, streaming TV and movies, music downloads, databases, digital magazines and more. Online classes will continue to be offered.

All 16 OCLS locations remain closed until further notice. For more information on how to access OCLS' services or sign up for a library card, click here.

"The library’s administration is taking the spread of COVID-19 very seriously and will continue to monitor the situation as it develops," the release states. "Once the library reopens to the public, we may reschedule some classes and events."
