The Winter Park Public Library is a public library located in Winter Park, Florida. The library's core mission is education.
The library dates back to 1885, when nine women organized to create a lending library for Winter Park. The library has been located at its present site since 1995. Books had previously been circulated in an organized reading circle, but a library didn't exist within the small community. The village of Winter Park was still in its infancy at this time, less than five years old, but both the incorporation of a railroad and the inaugural classes beginning at Rollins College in 1885 influenced the town's image as a desirable place to live. Intent on creating a lending library for the community, this ambitious group of women held a meeting at the Congregational Parsonage, which is now the location of the current Rollins campus, roughly where the Archibald Granville Bush Science Center sits today.
