What's Special About the Orchard Park Library
Located adjacent to the historic 1920s Railroad Depot Station, the Orchard Park Library serves southern Erie County as a center for reference and homework help with its large non-fiction collection. It has an extensive fiction, DVD and audio book collection. The children's collection is highlighted by innovative special displays and an interactive play area. A chessboard is available for public use.
Special programs for all ages, story times for children and computer classes are offered continually.
And finally and most importantly, it is our knowledgeable and responsive staff that makes our library so effective, friendly and welcoming.

They sponsor the 4th Tuesday speaker series, many of our special children's programs, quarterly donated book sales, an annual rare book sale and ongoing Book Nook, Book Cart and online book sales (www.ebay.com/usr/oplibrary).
