The Siuslaw Pioneer Museum began hosting a monthly program of oral presentations fondly referred to as Story Time. Residents spoke on a variety of topics such as occupation, event, or personal experience of significant interest regarding Florence history. The program is currently on hiatus, however past presentations were recorded and are available for viewing. Visit the William Kyle Research Library on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to view these remarkable events. Contact the library (541-997-7884, ext. 1) for more information.
