The Winter Haven Library plays a vital role in our community, serving as a welcome center of social and cultural enrichment. Since the construction of the Winter Haven Public Library, Kathryn L. Smith Memorial, virtually everything about learning, accessing information and the very nature of libraries themselves has changed. While the world around us continues to change, the library’s mission remains the same: to improve the quality of life of our community and promote lifelong learning and access for all. The Friends of the Winter Haven Public Library’s sole purpose is to help support the community by enhancing the quality of the Library’s services and collections through memberships, donations and fundraising activities. Your continued support allows us to carry out this mission.
