Fine Forgiveness

This Summer at FLPL
As a thank you to our patrons, we are offering Fine Forgiveness this summer at Florence-Lauderdale Public Library! When you come in and use your library card, all pre-existing overdue fines will be forgiven. Haven't been to the library in a while? Now is a great time to come see all the great services we have to offer.

Guitars for Checkout

Florence-Lauderdale Public Library’s guitar checkout program has officially launched! You can check out a guitar (complete with guitar kit and instructional DVD) at the Reference Desk on the 2nd floor of the library. Guitars check out for two weeks. In order to check out a guitar, you must provide a credit card and driver's license and have a library card in good standing (no more than $5 in fines).

We are also celebrating our new music initiative with a series of videos featuring prominent Shoals musicians. Visit FLPLibrary on YouTube to see these videos.
