About Us

The Florence Library houses approximately 12,000 items in our collection. Special sections include Texas fiction for children and adults, Texas non-fiction, Texas reference titles, and a growing collection of Spanish language titles for adults and children.  Local archival records are also on file.

There are four public computer stations, one iPad, one Chromebook, two children’s Kindle tablets, seven children’s Kindles and free wi-fi service at the Library. The tablets and Chromebook are available for Florence Library card holders and are for library use only.

Library Cards

Library cards are free to Florence residents with a valid form of identification and proof of residence.  Check-out time is 3 weeks for all materials except DVDs, which are checked-out for 7 days. New patrons are limited to three items checked out on the first visit.
Books may be renewed by phone or online by logging into your account at the top right side of the catalog page. Enter your library card number and PIN (your phone number). You can renew your materials by clicking on My Account.

Using a TexShare card from another library to obtain a Florence Public Library card

Out of town patrons can obtain a Florence Public Library card by presenting a valid TexShare card (obtained from the patron’s home library) at the circulation desk. You will need to present a valid ID when applying for a card. TexShare card visitors cannot check out DVDs, tablets, Kindles and Book/Audio combos (Vox books). Checkouts are limited to three books.

TexShare Cards

After you have been a member of the Florence Public Library for three months, and are in good standing, you are eligible to receive a TexShare card, which gives you borrowing privileges at many public and academic libraries in Texas.  Nearby libraries that participate in this program include Temple Public Library, the Lena Armstrong Public Library in Belton, Southwestern University, Georgetown Public Library, Round Rock Public Library, and UT-Austin.  Your TexShare card must be renewed annually.  Ask at the circulation desk for more information.
