Friends of the South Manatee Library


The Friends of the South Manatee Branch Library are pleased to announce a series of special events that will be held at the library from January through April, 2011.

On Saturday, January 15, life coach, psychologist, and certified meditation counselor Joan Dickinson will present meditation and relaxation techniques starting at 10:00 a.m. and continuing until 12:00 noon.

On Tuesday, February 15th, starting at 1:00 p.m., Barbara Rowe will give an overview of 200 years of women's progress during her historical portrayal of suffragist and civil rights leader Susan B. Anthony. Rowe's performance/presentation is scheduled to run until 3:00 p.m. On the evening of Thursday, March 24th, starting at 6:00 p.m. and continuing until 7:45 p.m., a very special performance by “S.O.U.L.,” (Singers of United Lands). This quartet of professional young adult singers will bring high-quality vocal musicianship to the library --along with geographic and cultural diversity, as each of the four singers hails from a different country.

Finally, on Wednesday, April 13th, starting at 2:00 p.m., performer Melinda Lavender presents a two-hour inspirational program of music, dance, and poetry.

Seating for these events will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Advance registration is not necessary for any of the programs. Special programs such as these are made possible by funds generously provided by the Friends of the South Manatee Branch Library. The Friends are a support organization for Manatee County’s South Manatee Branch Library. Monies raised by the Friends go toward programs and services that tax dollars alone cannot provide.

The South Manatee Branch Library is located at 6081 26th Street West in Bradenton, Florida. For more information, please call the library at 941.755.3892. For general information about the Manatee County Public Library System, visit us on the web at www.mymanatee.org/library
