Because of community support at the library we have started history project in which we would like to record the tales, memories, history and pictures of our community past and present.

Do you have a connections to Florence? Are you a part of Florence’s history? Florence will be celebrating their 150th birthday and the library will be celebrating its 100th birthday. We would like to put together a collection of stories, pictures or really anything that you would like to share for this occasion. You can comment on our Facebook pages, get in touch with one of our board members or drop off your stories and memories at the library. Thank you for your help in making this project one that everyone will enjoy.
