Rocky Bluff Library US 301 in Ellenton

Unique building looks like a castle surrounded by ponds. Pleasant helpful lady takes me to computers on back wall, which has long line of framed drawings.

At the entrance there’s a vestibule with couch and easy chair surrounded by historic documents and photos.

About a mile east of I-75 on US 301. The Ellenton Cafe is across the street


Magnuson Hotel 4694 W Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy Kissimmee

Terrific value for the money. Pleasant friendly check in and out. Got two beds when only needed one, apparently all their rooms are like that. Park directly in front of your room. Microwave and small fridge, plus excellent WiFi connection. No keys here, it’s card entry.

Free breakfast was toast and cereal plus juice and milk, don’t remember coffee. Pool in between front and rear building. Free shuttle to Disney, not sure about airport. Bus stop right outside on Irlo Bronson, aka US 192. Helicopter rides two blocks away on Mile Marker 13, other attractions nearby. .

Magnuson is ideal for inexpensive weekend getaway.


Lakeland Public Library FL

First time here last Saturday, it’s across the parking lot from the Polk Museum of Art. Huge place with pop machine at entrance. Several desks with outlets for laptops and whatever.

Well laid out open feeling to this library. Impressive reading area with glass window facing Lake Morton across the street. A pleasant place tor work or pleasure.
