Of the DeLand Public

The Friends of the Library (FOL) are dedicated to fostering a love of libraries, books
and reading in
the Volusia County area by community outreach, advocacy and support of
the Volusia County Public Library

Important Notice!

Sadly, with much thought and discussion along with the health interest of our patrons and volunteers, the book store is now closed for the rest of the year.

At this time there is no date as to when the library itself will be opened and functioning in a normal state. It has been announced that when it does open, the conference room and auditorium will not open immediately. Because of this the bookstore could not hold our monthly book sales.

Thank you kindly for your support and understanding. We wish you good health and safety and looking forward to serving you again.
