Interested in discovering the history of you?
Come to the Friends of the Library's General Membership Meeting on Thursday, October 9. Find out about the Library's latest database, Ancestry Library Edition.
The largest online family history resource available, Ancestry Library Edition provides unprecedented access to family history via documents that record the lineage of individuals from the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, and more. Distributed by ProQuest and powered by Ancestry.com, Ancestry Library Edition, made available by funding provided by the Friends of the Library, brings the world's most popular consumer online family history resource to your Wilton Manors Library.
Refreshments will be served beginning at 6:30 PM with the meeting starting at 7:00 PM. The program is open to all, not just Friends members. If you are not a member, please consider joining.
Join us on November 8th at the Friends' Book Tent Event
The Book Tent Event will be held from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. in conjunction with the Island City Yard Sale. The Yard Sale is held on the second Saturday of every month from November through April at Hagen Park, 2020 Wilton Drive. Many popular items -- books, videos, CDs, and more -- will be available at low, low prices.
Money raised under the Book Tent is an important source of revenue which enables the all-volunteer, non-profit Friends of the Library to underwrite the cost of programs, video purchases, and computers and other equipment at your local "independent municipal library," the Richard C. Sullivan Public Library of Wilton Manors.
