Images of America: Groveland

New book

On June 22nd, a new book was released detailing a history of Groveland.  Part of the Images of America series, the book [appropriately titled "Groveland"] was written by former Groveland resident Doris Woolum Bloodsworth and contains numerous photos of Groveland from its inception when it was called Taylorville through current times.  The book also contains information about Groveland's South Lake neighbors Clermont, Mascotte, Montverde, Minneola, and Stuckey.  The Marion Baysinger Memorial County Library staff assisted Ms. Bloodsworth with her research and contribution of photos and is proud to be a co-sponsor with the City of Groveland and the Groveland Historical Society of a One Book-One Community summer reading program.  As part of its contribution, the library will be hosting 4 brown bag luncheon discussion groups which will be conducted by the author.  The luncheons will be held at 12:00 noon every Wednesday in July.  The dates and topics are: July 8th--Taylorville & Early Groveland; July 15th--Groveland: 1940-1960s; July 22nd--Schools & History Makers; and July 29th--Neighboring Communities.
