Florence Library Reopens

Wyoming, ON - The County of Lambton and the Township of Dawn-Euphemia are advising the public that the Florence Library will reopen to the public on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 for regular scheduled Tuesday hours, 4:00 - 8:00 p.m.

The library was temporarily closed beginning in August of this year following an equipment fire that resulted in significant smoke and water damage to the library space, materials, equipment and furnishings.

"The County of Lambton, as library service provider, and the Township of Dawn-Euphemia, as building owner, have been working together to undertake extensive repairs to restore the library space," said Andrew Meyer, General Manager, Cultural Services Division. "We thank the community of Florence and our library patrons for their patience during this time, and look forward to serving them in the newly restored location."

The library space has been outfitted with replacement shelving, furnishings, computer equipment, books and materials. In an effort to make the space available to the community once again, the library will be open to the public beginning Tuesday, November 19, 2019. However, not all library resources will be available. Staff will continue to work over the next few days to set up the public computer workstations and get the full collection of books and materials in place by the end of the week.

Florence Library regular hours of operation are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Shetland Library will return to regular hours: Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. and Saturdays 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
