“The single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children.”

February, 2023 Donor Annual Report

Thanks to all of you the Mount Dora, W. T Bland Library is the fastest growing library in Lake County.  It has increased 21% since September. With a quarter million circulation, your library is the 2nd busiest library in Lake County, only second to Clermont.

Because of your donations, The Friends of the library, have been able provide a continued commitment to a variety of programs that engage readers, stimulate youngsters with hands on projects, and provide visual fun and excitement for all.

At the Halloween Toddler and Preschool event over 400 children received free books, candy and popcorn supported by the Friends of the Library.  The December Christmas Cookie Decorating event provided a fun holiday spirit affair that challenged youngsters’ creative imagination and decorating skills. 

Thank you for your ongoing generous support. We are able to renew our sponsorship of critical programs for the patrons of the library each year and especially towards our commitment to enhancing early childhood reading readiness.

P.S. Our children in Mount Dora are the future. Many of them depend on the support they get from our public library, so please send any gift today! You can donate online below.
