The Library began when nine women, all “well educated, capable, energetic, and affluent, came together on the morning of December 9, 1885, to affix the stamp of organization to the Winter Park Circulating Library Association.” The nine women were: Mrs. Elizabeth Hooker, Miss Evaline Lamson, Mrs. W.O. Cady, Miss Mary McClure, Miss Alice Guild, Mrs. C.J. Ladd, Mrs. Clark, Mrs. Cook, and Miss Mary Brown. The Congregational Church parsonage was the site for the organizational meeting.

The Library’s new facility opened in December 2021. It was designed by acclaimed architect Sir David Adjaye, and is located on the corner of Morse Boulevard and Harper Street. The new facility features more spaces and improved places, with a design that is both magnetic and vibrant. Over a century ago, several women with ideas and tenacity began this library, a library that continues today with much the same spirit. Winter Park Library continues to guide learning, connect people, and strengthen the community.
