Florence Public Library, also known as the Florence County Public Library, is a historic library building located at Florence, Florence County, South Carolina. It was built in 1925, and is a two-story-over-raised-basement, T-shaped brick veneered building with Neo-Classical Revival architecture and Beaux Arts design influences. It has a concrete foundation, reinforced concrete walls, limestone decorative elements, and a standing seam metal roof. It was the first public library in Florence. In 1977-1978 the library built a large one-story expansion and made extensive renovations to the original 1925 building.[2][3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.[1]
