Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation Library — Florence, South Carolina
SC Picture Project | Florence County | Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation Library
This stately library in Florence was built with funds granted to the Florence County Library System in 2003 by the Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation. The foundation was formed in 1995 following the sale of the Carolinas Hospital System in order to “advance the general welfare and the quality of all life in the Florence, South Carolina area and the surrounding region by providing economic support to qualified programs and non-profit organizations.”
The Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation granted $10,635,000 to the Florence Library to be matched by Florence County. The building serves as the library’s headquarters.
Other projects resulting from grants by the foundation include the Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center and the Dr. Eddie Floyd Tennis Center, among many others. The foundation also provides scholarships such as the Nursing Scholarship Program at Francis Marion University.
