BY ALICE GORMAN - Everyone in Boca Grande loves the Johann Fust Community Library. The building, with its gracious gardens on 10th Street that was given to our community by the Roger Amory family, is an institution that has continued to be a place of serenity and literary resources since 1949.
Last winter, the board circulated a survey in front of the Boca Grande Post Office that asked the community for its thoughts and opinions on our library system. The results that came back gave us a clear path to the answer to the problem.

BY LIZA STROUT - The 2012 Taste of Boca was held in a tent this year, and that’s a really good thing. Half an hour before the sun set, a double rainbow appeared over Charlotte Harbor. It was the perfect omen for an evening of good food, fun, and wonderful music.
