In 1985, Friends of the Winter Haven Public Library established two book endowment funds to enhance and improve the book collections at the library. One fund assists in developing the adult library collection. The other helps the children’s library. Donors can memorialize or honor others through their contributions to the funds, or simply contribute to assist the library.
