OLA's mission is to promote library service, to encourage access to materials among all county libraries through cooperation and exchange of information, to promote state and national guidelines for library service, to educate the public about library services and funding issues, to provide regular programs, meetings and publications to educate members, and to oppose censorship and pledge active support in local areas where freedoms are attacked. OLA is interested in promoting programs and projects in which all 17 libraries can participate, which utilize our county funding and which will promote literacy and reading. Our principal activities are meetings, training for members, and the OrangeREADS project.
