Thank You Sponsors!
You made 2017 an Amazing Event!

The 7th Annual Love Your Library event on February 10 was a great time for all. The Key West Fest theme had everyone on “island time” with a casual and relaxed feel for nearly 300 attendees. The laid-back dress and music of the night was a huge hit and there was even a “pirate” of the Caribbean roaming around. It was all topped off with the fantastic smells and tastes of the Havana House Café & Grill.

The Citrus County Special Library District Advisory Board hosts this signature event annually with the help of all the Friends of the Library, volunteers, and staff. This year over $17,300 was raised for the Citrus County Library System foundation fund toward the goal of renovating the Lakes Region branch in Inverness and the Coastal Region branch in Crystal River. Both libraries are over 30 years old and need work to bring them up to date and provide for strong, vibrant centers of learning for all ages for many years to come.

Everyone involved would like to thank the community for its passionate support of our local libraries. A very special thank you goes out to the many individuals, organizations, and local businesses that sponsored the event this year. Our sponsors continue to support the critical role public libraries play in Citrus County and support the mission to promote the pursuit of knowledge and deliver quality education to the community, embracing the power of information, imagination, and ideas. Without their direct contributions this event would not have been possible. Please recognize and support all of the remarkable sponsors listed on this page.
Planning is already underway for another memorable event next year. So, mark your calendars, save the date for February 9, 2018, and plan to join us for the 8th Annual Love Your Library event. Bring your tie-dye, big colorful flowers, and smiley faces, as we jump on the VW bus for a trip back to the 1960s! See you there.
