Children’s Lending Library
The Children’s Lending Library of Florence is a non-denominational, non-profit organization run by a volunteer committee and housed as “guests” of St. James Church.
The Library opened its doors in 1973 in light of a need for a point of reference for English-speaking families that enabled them to meet and share information in their own language. The library is geared to facilitating communication and reading in English as well as to celebrating culturally important festivities such as Easter, Halloween and Christmas.
The library has many 1000’s of quality books (ranging from board books for toddlers through Junior Fiction and non-Fiction) as well as a large video library.
The library is open to the public from September through May
Sundays 10:00 am – 10:45 am and 12:15 pm – 1:00 pm
Wednesdays 10:00 am – 12:00 noon and 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm.
It is opened by appointment only in July and August. For more information, the Website is: www.childrenslibrary.altervista.org
