Stephen King in Bradenton Florida


Thanks to the community’s overwhelming response, we have sold out the limited seats available for our Evening With Stephen King. We cannot thank you enough. Our goal has been reached and our library, hopefully, will have a new operating system in 2015. Heartfelt thanks to our supporters and get ready to further enjoy our wonderful library!

Community support has been fabulous
