About former Lantana Public Library Director Sid Patchett

SidPatchettGood morning!
I’m belatedly posting the obituary from the Coastal Star (for October 2019) for former Lantana Public Library Director Sid Patchett, who sadly passed away in September.


Sid was our Library Director from 1996 until mid 2019 — about 23 years!   Sid’s professionalism, commitment, and wealth of knowledge and experience in libraries and of the world helped found a larger, independently unique library that will serve the town and the larger community well into the 21st century.  For a written history of the Library by Sid, please visit Lantana Public Library’s website at, under About Us/Library’s History.

The Coastal Star also featured Sid and the Lantana Public Library in an earlier article, “Lantana: Library is here for the cerebral, not the Stephen King fan” by Chris Felker on February 4, 2015.

Our Library was originally founded in 1947 by the Lantana Women’s Club and for many years was located at our intracoastal bridge in the Bridge Tender’s House(now an historic building found at Yesteryear Village at the PB County Fair Grounds).  Our Library is now located at 205 West Ocean Avenue, in Lantana.  Please stop in and visit us!
