Letter from the Manager

Dear Friends,

We have some big news for you! After 20 years of serving you at our current location, the Edgewater Branch is moving to a new and improved location in a nearby shopping center. Our new home, the Fairview Shores Branch located at 902 Lee Road, Suite 26, Orlando, FL 32810, is in Adanson Marketplace, a bustling and newly renovated shopping center just one mile from our present location. The plaza is easily accessible, located just off I-4 at the Lee Road exit.

Our new space is in a much more visible location, and it puts us in closer proximity to some of our existing community partners and the residents of the Lee Road Safe Neighborhood program. We hope it will give us more opportunities to partner with other like-minded businesses and organizations in the community. We plan to offer more after-school activities once we are established in our new location and increase our programs for babies and toddlers.

Although we do not have an exact move date yet, we anticipate moving by summer 2019. We will keep you informed every step of the way, and we will be advertising our new location in coming weeks, so please look out for news about our big move.

We look forward to serving you in our new and improved home!

Griselda Clarke
Manager, Edgewater Branch
