7/20/2013: Seffner-Mango Branch Library

On July 20th, the Library History Roadshow visited the Seffner-Mango Branch Library. Despite the rain, both images and memories of the library were captured through interviews with local library patrons.

Jack Bishoff was happy to share his experiences of the Seffner-Mango Branch Library with us. He believes in taking advantage of all that the library has to offer and has made great use of some of the library's genealogy databases. Through HeritageQuest and Ancestry (Library Edition) he has found some very interesting information about his ancestors: 

Laura Barnes, shared her enthusiasm for her local library and recalls when the Seffner-Mango Branch opened in her neighborhood several years ago. 

Thank you to everyone who braved a rainy Saturday to come out to share memories for this edition of the Library History Roadshow and thank you also to the Seffner-Mango Branch Library staff for hosting -- we had a great time and enjoyed meeting all of you! 

The next roadshow will take place September 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Jan Kaminis Platt Regional Public Library. 

Though it's a long way off, preparations are well underway for our library system's Centennial Celebration! Please mark your calendars for our large kick-off event taking place New Year's Day, January 1, 2013 at the West Tampa Branch Library!
