Latt Maxcy Memorial Library
In 1976 the City made an agreement with the Maxcy Foundation to accept the new library to be built on North Magnolia Avenue in memory of Latimer Maxcy, a philanthropist who had done so much to improve the education and cultural awareness of the community. This library was dedicated and opened to the public on April 16, 1978.
The library now houses over 28,000 books, audiobooks, movies, periodicals and e-books. Programming is offered to all ages. The Latt Maxcy Memorial Library has come a long way from its proud beginning. It is owned and operated by the City of Frostproof, a member of the Polk County Library Cooperative and is partially funded by the Polk County Board of County Commissioners.
