We want to invite everyone and anyone who loves the Lake Wales Public Library to become a member of our "Friends of the Library."
The Lake Wales Library Asso. was born out of a desire to have a publicly operated library for the citizens of our community. In 1957 a group of dedicated individuals traveled to our state's capitol to ask for a special taxing district to insure public library services would always be available to our community.
The Lake Wales Library Association - Friends of the Library built the 5000 square foot building in 1960. In 1991 they added on to the small public library, quadrupling the size, all with donated funds.
Throughout the decades the LWLA - FOL has continued to support our LW Public Library with funds for programs, furniture, books, materials, computers and much, much more.
Help up continue in this difficult economic time. Become a member of the Lake Wales Library Association - Friends of the Library.
