About OCPL

OC Public Libraries
is a network of community libraries in your neighborhood or as near as your computer. We have 32 branches as well as an outlet in the Orangewood Children's Home to provide a variety of services to residents throughout the County. Some of the branches are operated within the jurisdiction of the county's 33 cities and some within the county's unincorporated area.

Once you have an OC Public Libraries card, you are entitled to check out materials from any of our 32 branches as well from other libraries with reciprocal lending privileges. OC Public Libraries welcomes your visits and hopes you take the time to get acquainted with our staff, services, materials and programs.
