New Look for the Online Catalog

We've changed our look....the online catalog has recently been upgraded for a new look and more information about library materials.

At this point we are almost done...still a few things to tweak. Soon you should be seeing book cover pictures, summaries and more information about each item.

Searching online for a book is very much the same. And you can still place a request for a book online or renew books online in the My Account area.

Thanks to the Florida State Legislature for a CLIC (Community Libraries in Caring) grant that paid for this upgrade to a more sophisticated library online catalog which we feel will improve your library experience.

Alligators in the Backyard

A new online photographic exhibit titled Alligators in the Backyard was added to the Florida Memory Project Web site.

'Gators' are a Florida icon; from team mascot to tourist attraction we are fascinated by the animal with which we share our state.

This online photo exhibit shows pictures of alligators as they are hunted, in nature, and as we see them as tourists and in popular culture.

A few of the photos show Ross Allen and alligators at Silver Springs. There is even a photo of an alligator climbing a stairway. There are many more photos on various alligator topics.

The Florida Memory Project documents events in Florida's history using photographs and original documents. It is part of the State Library and Archives of Florida.
