October is a Month of Festivals

 

October is a month of fall festivals, pumpkins and costumed trick-or-treaters. Also, Teen Read Week is celebrated this month, October 12-18.  We hope all our teens and their families will visit our library to discover the many resources and activities offered for young adults to succeed in school and beyond.

Digitized Issues of The Gateway Available in the Library

Back issues of The Gateway from 2003 through 2012 are now available for viewing on the Library's internet terminals in digital format.  This digitization was made possible with a donation by AAA Taxi.

To find the issue* you want, go to the Library's homepage, www.floralparklibrary.org, and click on "Gateway" from the menu on the left- hand side.  Choose the year you want, then the issue you want (for full date, mouse over the icon), and click.  The issue you seek will come up in PDF format.  Best of all, it's searchable, including the ads.  Ask our librarians for a demonstration.

We hope to digitize additional editions, starting with the year 1926, as more funds become available.

*The March 16, 2005 issue is not available.
