The Library in the Community
Flagler County Public Library provides more than 30 different products and services to all residents regardless of age, race, ethnic, and financial backgrounds. The library acts as the heart of this community with more than 44,000 registered borrowers. Registering to vote, voting, and tax preparation all take place here. Now the library is also an acceptance facility for passport applications. The library can function as a one-stop shopping center or an edutainment complex.
The library contributes to quality of life by providing the resources to inform, educate, and entertain the public. This allows each person the ability to redistribute their money they would have spent on books, movies, music, internet, and other forms of entertainment to areas of more importance such as gas, food, home, and medicines. When you take into consideration the overall savings to each household as a result of the existence of the public library, there would be a large return on the investment.
