Welcome to 

The Children’s Lending Library of Florence!

Originally founded in 1973 to cater to the children of the English-speaking community, today the Library’s resources of books and DVDs in English are utilized by the Florence community as well.  The Library also holds a children’s party at Easter, Halloween and Christmas which gives both parents and children a chance to meet and enjoy some of the games and activities we provide.   

The library is open to the public from mid September through June.
