Welcome to the Media Center

Orange County Public Schools' library media programs are the hub of our schools and provide equitable access to resources that engage students in learning. Through promoting reading appreciation, teaching digital and information literacy skills, facilitating inquiry through both independent and collaborative learning, library media programs contribute to ensuring that every student has a promising and successful future.
