City of Parker, Florida Library History

 

In March of 1989, Parker City Councilwoman Brenda Hendricks rallied the Parker City Council to set aside funds to remodel the current Arts and Crafts shop in order to make room for a branch of the Bay County Public Library. This placed the librarian in a section of the Parker municipal complex.

 

On August 1, 1989, over 100 people attended the dedication and ribbon cutting of the new Parker Public Library. Council members responsible for founding the new library included Mayor Earl Gilbert, Brenda Hendricks, Paul Davis, Alpharetta Holbrook, and John Boisky. Their insight still carries forth and has been a welcome addition to the community.

 

At the dedication, Library Director George Vickery welcomed Parker Public Library as a member of the Bay County Public Library System, and by extension, the Northwest Regional Library System.

 

The first branch manager was Rosemary Cotton. Debbie Daniels took over in 1991 and remains today.

 

Parker Public Library has provided books, DVD’s, magazines, newspapers, story time for children , and computer services for the Parker community in ever increasing numbers.

Parker is a wonderful city full of friendly neighbors. I enjoy walking Donaldson Point every morning.
