Residents of St. Petersburg have countless resources at their fingertips and around the city, provided by the St. Petersburg Library System.
Over 100 years ago, the city’s first library opened its doors as simply the St. Petersburg Public Library – known now as the Mirror Lake Library. Now, the residents of the city have seven locations to choose from for their reading and resource needs. Its services include a variety of online resources, programs for all ages, and (of course) a vast array of books. Each of the seven locations includes free Wi-Fi, public computer access and resources such as copying and printing and has access to countless copies of books, magazines and most things in between.
St. Petersburg Library System
The St. Petersburg Library System consists of seven libraries located around the city: Main Library, Childs Park Library, James W. Johnson Library, Mirror Lake Library, North Library, South Library and West Library at SPC. Each library provides the same general services and programs to its local users. The system unites these branches as one entity, organizing various programs and commuting resources between the different locations where needed.
