COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

Historical Note:  The largest book lender in Boynton Beach before the City Library was the Boynton Woman’s Club; it was often referred to in the newspapers of the time as the public library. The City of Boynton paid the Woman’s Club librarian’s salary by the mid-1954. Other sources for lending books included several organizations that had small lending libraries, including the Jaycee Club; the postmaster Ethel Pierce; and each local school had a library for its students. Boynton Beach residents also used the Palm Beach, Lake Worth, and Delray libraries.  However, as the population of Boynton Beach expanded, the need for a full service library increased. By the late 1950s, the library room in the Woman’s Club was overcrowded and residents complained that the building was on a busy street, unsafe for children to walk alone. Also, African-Americans were not welcome in the Boynton Woman's Club at that time. The Club did launch a project to set up a library in the African-American community;1 in 1963, the Club noted that efforts to get a local African-American organization interested in setting up a lending library, to which they would contribute books, were unsuccessful.2  

The  Boynton Woman's Club was significant in establishing a full service City Library.  The Woman’s Club library committee agreed to give its library books and shelving to the city if the City Council agreed to provide a facility for the books, employ a professionally trained librarian, and installed two of the Women’s Club members on the library advisory board for five years.  In 1960, the city of Boynton Beach purchased and expanded a residential home located at 116 S. Seacrest Boulevard (at the corner of Seacrest and Ocean Avenue) to serve as the library, with a seating capacity of 34. Within months the library, which was open 34 hours per week, had 858 borrowers and had collected 8,050 volumes. The City Council budgeted $10,000 to expand the building in response to the growing needs. In 1966, another addition was made to the building, and in 1968, the members of the newly formed Boynton Beach Historical Society dedicated a new Florida Room, enlarging the library to 4,000 square feet.  In response to increasing needs for more space and services, a 12,000 square foot structure, located next to the existing library, was built and dedicated in 1974; it included a separate children’s area, a young adult area, a large meeting room, a typing room, a music room, and a quiet study area. The library catalog was automated in 1986.

In 2004, the firm of Schenkel Shultz Architecture designed a new 35,166 square foot two-story addition to the building. After a groundbreaking ceremony in 2004, there was a two year delay of construction. A new 35,166 square foot two-story addition to the building, was opened to the public in March 2008 and the original 27,698 square foot facility was totally renovated and opened in March 2009 (62,864 sq. ft. total). The 2009 facility was equipped with study rooms, meeting spaces including a large meeting room with a capacity for 150 people, a computer lab, Wi-Fi (wireless Internet service), a 1,500 square foot climate controlled Local History & Archives Department, and a café.

In 2018, the library was demolished, along with the City Hall, Police Station and Jail, Arts Building, and Civic Center. A new City Hall/Library building was constructed at 100 E. Ocean Avenue as part of a Town Square Development. During the construction period of two years, the library was housed at 115 Federal Highway, in the building originally built in 1953 for the Boynton Beach State Bank. The Boynton Beach City Library reopened on 27 July 2020 in the new building, with the Library decreased in size to about 50K square feet.
