Johann Fust Community Library
The Johann Fust Community Library contains a wide variety of books, magazines and videos, as well as a children's room and a reference area that includes more than 10,000 volumes. Built in 1949, the library was given to the village of Boca Grande by winter residents Mr. and Mrs. Roger Amory. The beautiful pink stucco building is recognized for its welcoming carved cypress doors and an open-air loggia, complete with formal gardens and fountain.
Readings, lectures, children's activities, and other events are open to all island visitors.
