CHECK IT OUT: The Crestview Public Library as a meeting place

Published: Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at 03:18 PM.

For years, libraries were known as the place to borrow books. We have evolved into a community meeting place, providing a space where community members come together and talk about what they can do for the community or what the community can do for them. Meeting room space is available for groups up to 80 people.

We are also the community’s technology center, providing free access to the internet, Wi-Fi, notary service and fax service.

A wide variety of classes is available; for example, this past month we started a sign language and Spanish language class. We provide space for art exhibits and musical performances. Another out-of-the-box program is stargazing — 6:30-8 p.m. third Tuesdays — presented by Tom Haugh from the Northwest Florida Astronomy Association. The Northwest Florida Astronomy Association has donated an Orion Star Blast 4.5-inch telescope for check out.

Check out our library — you will be surprised and delighted by what is available.

However, please note: We will close Friday for air conditioning repair. We will reopen at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
