About Us

Developed by the Orange County Library System, Orlando Memory is a community based digital archive designed to capture and preserve the stories, images and memories of our Orlando community. Orlando Memory is the story of Orlando, FL told by its people. Local adventures and moments in time are captured here with photos, video clips, audio recordings, and other memorabilia.
