The Seminole County Public Library System is a public library system with five branches located in the cities of Casselberry, Sanford, Oviedo, Lake Mary, and Longwood, Florida. The Jean Rhein Central Branch (Casselberry) is located at 215 N Oxford Rd, Casselberry, FL 32707.
The League of Women Voters initiated the movement for a public library service in Seminole County. In 1974, a straw poll took place and citizens voted in favor of a countywide library system. The following year, Seminole County made a contract with the Orlando Public Library to operate the Casselberry and Sanford branches and start a bookmobile service. Seminole County residents had access to other services provided by the Orlando Public Library as well.
In 1982, a referendum vote was held that approved the expansion of the library system "by issuance of $7,000,000 in Library Bonds". It was believed this was possible because of the county's population growth as a result of Disney World and Epcot Center.
As a long time Florida resident, I have watched Florida's development over the years, some of it reckless, some of it wise. With Seminole's population continuing to grow, it is more important than ever for leadership in the county to help thoughtfully guide the use of our irreplaceable resources. My family and I moved to south Florida in 1977 and to the Orlando area in 1990. My background as a dentist in the area for over 25 years established deep connections to the people of central Florida. In addition, I value my time as a volunteer in community efforts including donating dentistry for those in need at Orange Technical College, and volunteering at the Marine Discovery Center, Cross Seminole Trail Alliance, Chair of WMFE Community Advisory Board, and as a Super Scientist in the Seminole County public schools. I have worked with the landscape committees of several large HOA's and am currently the chair of my HOA landscape committee involving 538 acres of Seminole County.
