Library Staff Manuel King and a coffee loving friend.
The Friends of the Orange Public Libraries are running two fundraising campaigns that promise to help your mornings get off to a delicious and energetic start while helping to support your local libraries.

The first fundraising campaign, now in its final week, offers the yummy, locally made Boston Tea Cakes. These gourmet cakes come in a variety of mouth-watering flavors: Sour Cream & Cinnamon, Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry, Chocolate Ecstasy, Cranberry Cream, Lotsa Lemon and Pumpkin Cream. Each cake serves 8-10 guests and sells for $12.00. Whether you are visiting, need a holiday thank you gift or are entertaining at home, one of these scrumptious cakes will be welcomed by all. If you own a business please consider one of these cakes as a gift to your clients and make them aware that you support the Orange Public Libraries.

Please call or drop by the Wheeler Memorial Library in downtown Orange or the Moore-Leland Library in North Orange to place your order. Checks should be made payable to Friends of the Orange Public Libraries. Orders can be placed until 2:00 pm Saturday, December 13, and paid for at that time or at the time of pick-up. Cakes will be available for pick-up at the Wheeler on Wednesday, December 17 and at the Moore-Leland in North Orange on Thursday, December 18 – just in time for the holidays!

Secondly, we are partnering with Dean’s Beans Coffee to offer their delicious medium and dark roast coffees at $10/lb, (also available in decaf at $11/lb), hot chocolate ($7/12 oz. bag), and “Java Drops,” dark chocolate-covered espresso beans ($9.50/lb Bag).

Your contributions help support the excellent programs supported by the Friends. Your support is much appreciated and helps meet the many needs of the library's patrons and the community as a whole!

The Wheeler Memorial Library is open on Monday and Tuesday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, on Wednesday and Thursday from 1:00 to 8:00 pm and on Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. The Moore-Leland Library in North Orange is open on Tuesday from 3:00 to 6:00 pm, on Thursday from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm and 3:00 to 6:00 pm, and on Saturday from 10:00 to 1:00 pm.
