About Us

The first public library in the Florida Keys opened in Key West in 1853. Today, Monroe County Public Library serves more than 350,000 adults and youth, via five locations, from Key Largo to Key West. We strive to meet the growing and changing literacy needs of our patrons. We provide access to residents and visitors alike, and without discrimination of any kind. Our policies are informed by the Monroe County Library Advisory Board, the American Library Association’s┬áCode of Ethics/Library Bill of Rights, and feedback from our patrons. We hope you’ll feel free to contact us. We are grateful for the support of our friends groups throughout the Florida Keys.
