About Florence-Lauderdale Public Library

The Florence-Lauderdale Public Library is committed to developing quality programs, materials circulation, enrichment classes, and community relationships. Our knowledgeable staff of librarians, specialists, archivists, and volunteers are eager to help and share their expertise.
