The rich history of the Orange County Library System’s Albertson Public Library and Orlando Public Library is captured in these photographs taken through the decades. Images portray library patrons using resources and technology of different eras, library staff members engaged in everyday activities, and compelling shots of the two buildings that have occupied the corner of Rosalind Ave and Central Boulevard for the last 100 years. The exhibit will be on display through November 2023.
