SCF Libraries Offers Local Library Card Holders Greater Access to Books

(Bradenton, Fla., Sept. 5, 2017) —  As National Read a Book Day is celebrated Sept. 6 the libraries at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) want library card holders to know they have an extra option when looking for popular or hard to find books. SCF Libraries partners with the public libraries in Manatee and Sarasota counties and the Tampa Bay Library Consortium (TBLC) to offer community members access to resources at the College library. Anyone who holds a library card at the county libraries may apply for a library card with SCF to check out materials.

Interested community members can bring their county library card to the SCF library in Bradenton or Venice and may check out up to three books at a time. So if you’re interested in Stephen King’s, “End of Watch” or John Grisham’s “The Whistler” you can search the shelves at SCF. If you prefer non-fiction such as something on Russian History, check out “Lenin’s Tomb” by David Remnick. SCF Libraries offers a wide variety of reading material, so there’s no excuse for skipping Read a Book day.

Search the Library's catalog at scf.edu/library. Visit the libraries in person at 5840 26th St. W in Bradenton and 8000 S. Tamiami Trail in Venice.
