  1. Congrads to Sheila and all the staff at our beautiful city Library. The library started its humble beginning on Armstrong St and Hwy 20. and with the support of the city manager and city council, moved to its present location in the city complex. Sheila was an integral part of their success. Thank you for making our library one of the best in Florida.

  2. THE BEST LIBRARY AND LIBRARY STAFF EVER!! The facility is open and inviting, the staff is helpful and accommodating, and the book selection is phenomenal. If they don’t have a book in the county system, they will get it for you.
