ABOUT THE LAKE PARK LIBRARY
The Lake Park Library is committed to offering excellent service to those who visit or call the library. Our collection includes best sellers, practical books, magazines, newspapers, videos, audiobooks and DVD's. Computer software programs and Internet access are available.
There are two entrances to the library, one at 529 Park Avenue and the other on Greenbriar Drive. Parking spaces are available at the Greenbriar Drive entrance.
Special services include story hours for children, after school homework assistance for elementary school students, programs for adults, computers for use on personal projects for both children and adults and complete Internet access. There are two study rooms and a meeting room available for use by local organizations and clubs.
The library was started by the Woman's Club in 1962 and taken over by the town in 1967. In 1969 the library moved from the second floor of the Lake Park Town Hall into a new building next door. As the size of the book collection and the population of the town increased, it became necessary to add a separate children's room and a meeting room to the library in 1990.
Rapid changes in library services and an increase in the types of materials available at the library have made it necessary to expand the library again. Construction on the second expansion of the building began in December 1999 and was completed in October 2000, using funds available from the Lake Park Bond Issue and a construction grant from the Florida State Library. The library addition was dedicated October 21, 2000.
Lake Park residents are invited to become members of The Friends of the Lake Park Library. This group of supporters holds book sales and other fund raising events to provide additional funding for the library.
