Molino Branch Library Opens Monday

March 31, 2013

The new  Molino Branch Library will open Monday.

The new library in the Molino Community Complex will be open 52 hours per week –  from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

“Libraries are a fantastic place for families and individuals to visit to explore reading,” said District 5 County Commissioner Steven Barry.  “As part of the West Florida Public Library system, the Molino Branch is the seventh library in the County and a valuable resource to all citizens.”

An opening reception will be held at 10 a.m. on Monday to give the public an opportunity to meet the library staff, peruse the opening day collection, register for a library card and tour the facility.

“This long awaited branch will be a wonderful resource for the citizens of Molino and the surrounding community. We are expecting it will be a highly used facility,” said Darlene Howell, library administrator.

The Molino Branch Library is located at 6450 Highway 95A (just south of Molino Road) in the Molino Community Complex, which opened back in October 2012.

    I commend Ruth Gordon and Lil King for their tireless efforts to make the beautiful Molino Library a reality. They regularly attended the Pensacola Library Board of Trustees meetings to promote plans for a library in Molino and traveled to Tallahassee to lobby their state legislators. Congratulations to Ruth and Lil and their supporters. Enjoy your new library!

    Very cool! Not the biggest library, or that many books, but I like the computer/online access. Beautiful hardwood flooring. :)

    I can hardly wait to use the new library! We are already enjoying the new Community Center for Neighborhood Watch meetings, the Historical Society and other meetings! This is such an important part of Molino now!
