Our support for Manatee County Libraries includes sponsoring a lecture series we call the Community Enrichment Series. Even though the new Library that will serve Lakewood Ranch and East Manatee County is not yet built, serving the community is a priority for us.
We have been finding speakers and hosting lectures and information sessions at the Braden River Library. These are all free and open to the public.
Two Community Enrichment events have already been delivered. These included an Early Childhood Reading session designed to help give young children and their parents tools and ideas to boost their ability to read, and an Introduction to Genealogy Session. That was very popular and we hope to offer another one sometime in 2020.
Upcoming events include one called Traveling Solo: Tips & Tricks and a presentation by the Manatee County Senior Services for families interested in learning about the array of resources available to seniors.
