The Fontaneda Society serves the interests of booklovers through studies
in book collecting, fine printing and related graphic arts, bookbinding
and the many amenities of book design, typography and bibliography. The
Society is an independent group of book collectors that draws many of
its members from the south Florida counties of Broward; Miami-Dade; and
Palm Beach, although it also has other Florida and national members.


The Society is a member of the prestigious Fellowship of American
Bibliophilic Societies (FABS), an association of other book collectors
groups throughout the United States that shares ideas and information on
the book arts.


The Society's meetings are held the third Thursday of the month from
October to May at 7 p.m., at Broward County Main Library's, Bienes
Museum of the Modern Book. The meetings are free and open to the public
