The Orlando Public Library is the headquarters and resource center for the Orange County Library System. The 290,000 square foot Downtown Orlando facility is the largest public library building in the State of Florida. The Library has been located at this site since its beginnings as the Albertson Public Library in 1923. Public Reference Departments in the Orlando Public Library include Children’s, Genealogy, Law, Library Central and Reference Central. The Children’s Library offers spacious areas, special programs, computers and story rooms for our youngest readers and readers to be. A Computer Resource Center is located on the second floor and offers access to computers loaded with programs with word processing capabilities. The Friends of the Library Third Floor Bookstore is open daily and recycles withdrawn and donated books to the community. The Genealogy collection is one of the best in the Southeast and is a great place to begin research into family history.
