1st Floor: In the multi-purpose room of Kids Place, enjoy the tree of Fort Myers Beach. The 9' tall with 11' canopy diameter column clad Gumbo Limbo tree is handcrafted on a steel substructure with naturalistic, tactile, and durable bark texture. The tree is hand-carved, hand-sculpted, hand-painted, and scenically aged to reflect the nuances of a 65 year old Gumbo Limbo tree.
1st Floor: Photographs and documents that chart the history of the Beach Library since its inception in 1955.
2nd Floor: Housed in two cases and located along the north wall of the 2nd floor on the other side of the reading room, this collection of dolls from around the world has been donated by Mrs. F. Preston Root. Mrs. Root's husband was a foreign representative for Eastman Kodak, and these dolls represent their world travel that spanned the years between the two world wars. Dainty and elegant, some of these dolls are made with materials no longer used and are hand-painted with artistic techniques. Additions to the collection have been possible as donors have given one or more dolls to the Library in recent years.
2nd Floor: During January, February, and March of each year- explore the art, symbolism and joy in creating pysanky. Pysanky are Ukrainian Easter Eggs, decorated using beeswax and dyes that are applied in layers.
2nd Floor: Featured are a set of photographs by James Rodwell that highlights native flowers of the 60 acre Matanzas Pass Preserve located near the library.
Daughters of the American Revolution
