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.

Your continued support allows us to carry out this mission.  Here are just some of the ways you can give:

  • Become a Friend of the Library
  • Buy books at the Library Book Store
  • Volunteer to teach technology classes in the SEEDLab
  • Participate in annual fundraising events like the Jingle Bell Classic
  • Honor a loved one through a Friends of the Library Memorial Book


City and State funding pays only a portion of the Library’s expenses. With the support from the Friends of the Library and generous individuals like you the Library is able to assure a well rounded collection of books, audiobooks, DVD’s, music CD’s and more, as well as online resources and state-of-the art technology.
