Florence Community Library

The Florence Community Library will help all residents:


  • Address the desire for self-directed personal and educational growth
  • Find information about career opportunities and business and economic development
  • Fulfill their appetites for popular cultural trends and satisfying recreational experiences
  • Locate information on an array of topics, including Florence’s community resources


Your free library card is your ticket to adventure, travel and suspense. Enjoy a bone-chilling mystery unraveled by Hercule Poirot, peer into the mind of Aristotle or delve into a swashbuckling adventure with Robin Hood.


The library has access to virtually any large or regular print book, CD, DVD, audiotape or videotape in any language through a computerized network linking thousands of libraries worldwide.


Special sections of the Florence Community Library are devoted to the Southwest collection and Internet access.
