Médiathèque départementale de l'Orne

Médiathèque Départementale de l'OrneEveryone in the Orne should have access to a well-stocked library close to their home, as somewhere they can go for leisure or professional purposes. Access to reading and the development of cultural activities is essential in maintaining a vibrant rural community.

The MDO – the Orne departmental multimedia library – provides the library network with documents on loan, technical training, advice on local library layout and an on-line catalogue.

The MDO travels across the department with its "media buses” and shuttle services that come round once a fortnight to satisfy readers and the various structures in the department. They park up at markets or on public squares and lend books, CDs, and DVDs free-of-charge to the general public.

The MDO also organises a rich programme of events around a annual theme.
