The Florida Collection

The Florida Collection at the Downtown Orlando Public Library holds many unique and interesting literary Florida gems.

The vast collection spans through fiction and non-fiction alike, focusing on all things Florida. Old and new, history is alive in  this collection of rare Floridian  texts!

 

Take a gander at this one of a kind collection at the Downtown Orlando Public Library today!  Items do not circulate, but are available to browse and scan. Please handle with care.
