About the Branch

The construction of the West Oaks Branch was funded by the Library System and a Florida Library Construction Grant.

A special feature at West Oaks is the sculpture "The Squid Squad" by local artist Vince Sansone. The piece won "Best in Show" at the 1999 Fiesta in the Park. The Fiesta Committee purchased the sculpture and donated it to the Library.
