The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will offer free park admission for Literacy Day on September 8, 2013 when you present your library card, show a book borrowed from the library or donate a new or gently-used family-friendly book. Books will be donated to area libraries and schools.

 

Citrus County Library System volunteers will be available to assist visitors in signing up for a library card and to share information on library resources. They will be set up in the Visitor Center from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm.

Smithsonian: Journey Stories

museum

Journey stories are tales of how we and our ancestors came to America – are a central element of our personal heritage. From Native Americans to new American citizens and regardless of our ethnic or racial background, everyone has a story to tell. Our history is filled with stories of people leaving behind everything – families and possessions – to reach a new life in another state, across the continent, or even across an ocean.
