Central Library at 1301 1st Ave W Bradenton, FL 34205

Directly across from the Riverwalk and on Old Main Street, this library is a delight. Manatee County allows anyone to sign up to use a computer, no need for a library card. Stacks of free information publications published in Manatee County.

There are separate conference rooms for individuals or groups, although you can hear their chatter. Apparently the library is built on a bluff, as you have to climb several steps at the front entrance and none at the rear entrance. Security guard always on duty.

Good place to relax after taking a long stroll along the Riverwalk or stopping at nearby Main Street shops and restaurants.

Robin’s Downtown Cafe 428 12th St W Bradenton, FL 34205

Had a pleasant breakfast here a few days ago. On Old Main street Bradenton just a few blocks from the Riverwalk is this nice cafe where I was greeted by a gracious lady with a British accent.

Ordered a ham omelet with home fries, got a generous dish in a few minutes. Coffee cup reloaded once, then cashier asks if I wanted a cup to go. Came to about $10 including tip.

Walls adorned with landscape paintings for sale by a local artist. Sit outside in the cool morning if you wish, either way a good choice.
