SIS Meeting, October 24, 2012 (Wednesday evening)

Our next meeting for the year is on Wednesday evening, October 24, 2012, at the Port Tampa City Library. This is also the annual election for next year's officers.

Andrew Breidenbaugh, Chief Librarian in the Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, will speak on the subject of Library Informational Partnerships with Local Government: Day-to-Day and in Times of Crisis. We will also include a tour of the Port Tampa City Library. 

Port Tampa City Library is a 5,700 square foot Local Landmark building that was formerly a "Commerce Bank Building". Through the renovation process that took place in the Summer of 1998, the Library maintained much of its historic fabric. The exterior is neoclassical style with a marble base and glazed white terracotta tile above. Ionic pilasters and panels with urns and floral decorations are featured in the terracotta tile. New bronze entry doors are set in the original bronze frames. 

Inside, the first floor ceilings soar 16 feet to a cast plaster, coffered ceiling with egg-and-dart and dentil molding, a motif repeated in the pediment on the exterior of the building. Original marble and terrazzo floors and new custom made cherry cabinetry and light fixtures accentuate this elegant building!
