On April 21, 2019, the Dixie County Public Library held the first every Suwannee Spring Art Festival at the Glen Dyals Park in Suwannee, Florida to raise money for the county libraries and to support local artist and authors. 

When planning for the event began, Mrs. Cindy wanted to contact the Tobacco Free Partnership of Dixie County for their support of creating a tobacco free event.  The librarian wanted to make sure this event would be safe for kids and adults of all ages by signing a voluntary tobacco free event policy that restricts all tobacco use including Vaping during the event by vendors and visitors.
