Friends of the Island Library Program Highlights the Ringling Museum, Feb. 11

The Friends of the Island Branch Library welcome Ron McCarty to the Library on Thursday, February 11th, 2010.

McCarty, the Keeper and Curator of Cà d'Zan (House of John) at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, will present a fascinating talk about the palatial and awe-inspiring John and Mabel Ringling Museum of Art as part of the Alice Taylor Reed Lecture and Travel Series.

The program will be presented at 2:00 p.m. Seating is limited and will be available on a first come, first serve basis. There is no advance registration required.

The Friends of the Island Branch Library are a support organization for Manatee County’s Island Branch Library. Monies raised by the Friends go toward programs and services that tax dollars alone cannot provide.

The Island Branch Library is located at 5701 Marina Drive in Holmes Beach, Florida. For more information, please call the library at 941.778.6341.
