Spotlight on Columbia County Public Library

Columbia County Public Library
CCPL has three locations, the Main Library in Lake City, the West Branch Library west of I-75 in Lake City, and the Fort White Branch Library in Fort White. In 1959, the Lake City Women's Club asked the Columbia County Commissioners to fund a public library and they did so that year, with the library becoming part of the Suwannee River Regional Library.

On October 1, 1979, the library became a single county public library and left the SRRL. The library is a department of Columbia County Government and the Library Director reports to the Assistant County Manager. There are currently 25 employees spread over the three locations; four have MLS degrees and one is currently working on her MLS.
The Library Director writes a monthly column in the Lake City Reporter called At the Library where upcoming programs are promoted and usually tied to the collection.
