Most people go to the Clearwater Library on North Osceola Ave to take
out books, DVD's, or do research with the help of the dedicated and
talented staff. The Library provides an extensive variety of services,
and programs to meet the needs of Clearwater residents and businesses.
What most people don't know is that the Library has gone above and beyond
the call of duty and helped members of the Florida Center for Creative
Photography (FCCP) share the magnificent sunsets and moon risings/settings from the roof of the
five story library. Every other Tuesday evening, during winter months,
the Library has made the rooftop available to camera buffs, students,
and the occasional lucky Library visitors who happen to be near the
elevator when the group makes the ascent in the Library's elevator.
Everyone from the staff behind the desk, to the Security Officer who is
present with the group, sometimes in cold, windy, and nasty weather,
maintains a helpful and friendly attitude to everyone involved. Watching the
sun go down behind sail boats, the bridge, and downtown Clearwater
buildings' is beautiful; watching the sun go down behind the sail boats, the bridge, and downtown Clearwater buildings' from five stories up is
majestic and magical. After you do it once, you become hooked. We are near the end of  winter; members of FCCP and it's Director, Jeff Donald, want to thank the members of the Clearwater Library
staff for
their help in sharing another priceless gift the Library has to
offer. Although we welcome Spring and the warmer weather, we will miss
the opportunities to observe,  record and share, from the sky, what goes on in daily Clearwater life.  As an active student and co-organizer with FCCP, I know I share the sentiments of  others in our group. If ever we can help you share artistic interpretation/s of Clearwater
from above,  we would welcome the chance to do so. I can only imagine
how incredible it must be to witness activities like regattas,
fireworks, windsurfing and many of the other activities that make
Clearwater Beach famous world wide. Thank you all so much for helping us
share our vision,
and our magic, from this incredibly beautiful place that we are lucky
enough to call home.
