The library is the heart and soul of the community.

An announcement was recently made that there are plans in the works to add an additional 5,000 square feet to the existing 8,500 square feet of the Freeport, Florida, public library. The additional space will be used for STEM programs and its related equipment, along with more area for the arts and additional area for kids.

As in any community, the library is the heart and soul of the community and this additional area will bring the Freeport library into compliance with the standards for public libraries for small communities in Florida. A library is one of the most important public services the local government can provide for its citizens and Freeport will be at the forefront in this regard.
