Happy Anniversary!

Sherwood will be marking its fortieth anniversary on Sept. 17, 2011. We are beginning to pull together ideas of ways to celebrate and we welcome your suggestions. In particular, we're interested in ways the community has changed over the years and how the library has kept up. There are many ways that FCPL has changed with the times, and we'd like to show them to you.

"Check out" our e-books!

Many of you received electronic book readers as holiday gifts. We have handouts in the branch to help you learn your way around some of these readers. From home, you can visit this link to see what we offer, http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/library/dbsremote/resource/ebook.htm.

We hope to offer programs in the use of these readers in the months ahead. Check back for more information.

Libraries add Value!

Survey indicates that in many West Florida communities, libraries contribute to job creation, a strong economy and even wage increases. For instance, for every one tax dollar received, Florida libraries provide $8.32 in value, and increase from $6.54 in 2004. To read more, click here

Closer to home, a study in Philadelphia found the library built business in the community, helped people find jobs, and even raised the value of homes. To read more, click here.
