The David S. Walker Library was named for the founder of Tallahassee's first library and Governor of Florida from 1865-1868. It was a functioning library until 1976, when it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is now the home of Springtime Tallahassee, a civic organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of Tallahassee history and is headed by the Springtime Board of Directors who meet and operate from this library. Springtime Tallahassee is an annual event celebrating the arrival of spring with a huge parade through downtown and many other fun activities. Springtime members raised the funds necessary to restore the building. The library remains open for the public to see Monday through Friday.
