South Holiday Library Branch Renovations
SOUTH HOLIDAY LIBRARY REOPENING MONDAY, DECEMBER 5
- The library is reopening Monday, December 5, 2022. Because of supply chain issues, not all the furniture will be in place, but patrons can still browse and check out books, get on computers, etc. Over the course of the next few weeks, the rest of the furniture will be installed and programs will resume.
How are the renovations being paid for?
- Through a General Obligation Bond (GO Bond) that was approved by Pasco County voters in November 2018. A GO Bond is a municipal bond secured by the issuing government’s pledge to use all available resources, including tax revenues, to repay holders of the bond.
What can I expect when the library reopens?
- The interior will be completely updated and modernized. There will be new spaces for adults, teens and kids, meeting spaces, new technology, an expanded lobby, a renovated makerspace, and a central service desk. We are also adding new landscaping and outdoor spaces.
Will there still be books in the library?
- Yes, there will be plenty of books in our collection. However, we will be utilizing a more efficient use of shelving space to make room for the expanded public spaces. Plus, our collection will be more tailored to the community’s needs.
