  • Wednesday, October 15 at 12:15 pm – Bring your sack lunch and enjoy a free scary movie with popcorn, drink and candy bags.

The Florence Community Library is closed on Monday, October 13 in observance of Columbus Day. 

Teen Read Week is a national literacy initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) that is aimed at teens, their parents, librarians, educators, booksellers and other concerned adults.  It began in 1998, and its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users.
