The Port St. John Public Library has exciting times ahead. A look at the past and you'll understand why:

Front of the Port St. John library. When the Port St. John Public Library opened in 1988 the population of Port St. John was 8,500. The year 2000 statistics for Port St. John are estimated at around 20,000, an increase of over 230%! The 9,000 square feet of library space in 1988 was sufficient, but an expansion was needed.

The Brevard County Commissioners approved an expansion from 9,000 square feet to 16,000 square feet which was completed in January 2003. A grant from the State of Florida committed $300,000 to the project, thanks in part to calls from members of the Friends and community support.

The present facility is used for voting, literacy tutoring, workshops and meetings in the Port St. John area. The library offers free access to Internet. For over 4,000 students attending the Port St. John schools plus parochial, pre-school, high school, and home-school students, the library is a valuable resource. The library circulated 95,000 books in 1997, and 129,000 in 1999. It is truly a community library.

The Friends support the library through its memberships, book sales, and special gifts. Funding from the Friends provides supplies for children's story hours, library programs, special library projects, and helps promote awareness of library events and services.

We need you and want you to be a Friend of the Port St. John Public Library! Please consider becoming one so that you can be a part of the exciting times ahead at the Port St. John Public Library.
