Donation to Provide New Materials for Library
The Florence Public Library has received a generous donation from Adrian Overstreet. The funds will be used to purchase new computers, electronic equipment, new books, children’s dvds and also they will help provide children’s programs for the summer. Mr. Overstreet said that libraries were very important to him when he was growing up and he wants his donation to help make a difference in the community of Florence. Please stop by the library or call if you have some suggestions for these purchases.
