The Friends of the Library is a volunteer-based organization dedicated to enhancing the holdings of the Florence-Lauderdale Public Library through membership pledges, fundraising, and endowments. Our terms of service are from Oct. 1 to Sept 30 of each year. The library is very grateful to the Friends for all of their time and dedication to making this institution a success. Funding from the Friends has provided the library with:
