Brevard County Library Unveils Visual Catalog

Brevard County, Florida is privileged to have 18 different Libraries!  Many are within walking distance of a Space Coast Area Transit (SCAT) bus stop. 

The Brevard County Library System unveiled a new visual Catalog system this month.  You can search, discover and refine with the visiual library on MyLibraryWorld.com.  Log on anywhere!  Use the library's computers or go Wi-Fi at one of the local libraries. 

Search both inside and outside the library;across electronic data bases, book reviews and much more.

Discover by clicking on an animated word cloud.  The Visual Catalog uses the related words, synonyms, and even translations of the original search.

Refine will narrow results as customer's limit their search.  You can refine to year, genre, DVD's or books only, or even a book character's name.

My favorite location is the Eau Gallie Public Library located at 1521 Pineapple Ave, Melbourne, Florida.

Eau Gallie Public Library, Melbourne, Florida

 The Eau Gallie Public Library was founded in 1898, making it the the second oldest library in Brevard County, Florida.  The founders initially established the library in the Eau Gallie Post Office. The library was moved to several different locations over the years.  In 1962, the library was moved to its current location at 1521 Pineapple Avenue in Eau Gallie, where a new building was constructed in 1998.  This location has been recently remodeled and has installed beautiful picture windows overlooking the Indian River.  It is a relaxing evening to grab a book or magazine and sit in front of one of the windows facing the river.  There is a newly built walking and fishing dock behind the library where you can literally take a walk on the river.  My son, Jacob recently had a project needing a library trip.  We drove thru Wendy's for a Frosty and then headed to the library but not without a quick walk on the dock that stretches over the river.  Even though it was a somewhat windy walk - compliments of Hurricane Ike in the lower Gulf Atlantic, it was still a refreshing "time-out".  Just another escape route from the everyday rat race of life!

thanks!!!!!!!!!!!  I think I'm getting addicted.  Now just trying to figure out how to upload photos.  I did what you said, but photos still don't work.  I don't know if the photos from oak drive are in jpeg format.  I would think so though
