  3. Dunedin celebrates National Library Week by remembering the history of the library. The Dunedin Public Library is the oldest public library in Pinellas County dating back to 1895. It all started small when a wintering, Christopher B. Button, presented 200 books to Dunedin “for public use”. Bouton’s brother owned the Town Assembly Hall and transferred ownership to the Dunedin Library Association for the purpose of housing a public library and free reading room. The building became known as Library Hall and was located in what is now known as Edgewater Park. Read the full article to learn more about the history of our library! (Dunedin patch)

From our sponsor:

Where should you invest as a Dunedin resident with a nest egg of $149,000? Thanks to a change in the legal code, there is a new investment Dunedin residents need to know about. In fact, Bloomberg asked the experts where they would invest $100,000 right now and many of them picked it.

It may surprise you, but it’s art.

Growing your nest egg with art is nothing new. Wealthy families like the Rockefellers have done for centuries.

Here’s why:

  • Low correlation with equities according to Citi
  • Contemporary art historically yields 23.2% when inflation is > 3%
  • Contemporary art prices outperformed the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)

Translation: Art could be one of the best investments for uncertain times.

Lucky for you, we found Masterworks. This revolutionary platform allows you to invest in the art of Warhol, Monet, Picasso without spending millions.

The best part? Anyone in your area can skip their waiting list*.
