This list of public, college, and high school libraries
in Florida is published by the Historical Records Survey in
cooperation with the State Library Association. In connection
with its inventory of early American imprints and manuscript
collections, the Survey compiled a list of public and college
libraries in the state. A list of high school libraries was
furnished by Miss Henrie May Eddy, President of the State Li-
brary Association. The combined list is issued for the con-
venience of members of the Association and others interested
in library work in Florida.
