Molino Branch Library Is Now Open

April 2, 2013

The new Molino Branch Library in the Molino Community Complex opened Monday morning.

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.

An opening reception gave the public an opportunity to meet the library staff, peruse the opening day collection, register for a library card and tour the facility.

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.

The Molino Community Complex project included the conversion of the old Molino School in to a library, community center and museum. There was also a new 7,000 square foot facility constructed for the tax collector and property appraiser. The project was funded by local option sales tax monies.

    Exciting times for the WFPL, The Molino Branch is a new addition to the system and a georgeous facility. Opening Day was a great welcome to the public in this area of our community. Staff were so gracious with their service on this first day of serving the North end of the county.

    Yes they will take donations, there are guidelines as to what is put on shelves, what is not used goes to the Friends to be sold at the book sales. All of sale money goes directly back to the library for what is needed.

    I wonder if the new Library takes book donations? It’s great to see something positive like this and the new playground for kids!

    The new library is awesome! It has so many great books and movies, a wonderful children’s section and computers with color coded keyboards! The inside has plenty of room and looks so nice! Thank you for the great pictures and articles, William!
