About Pasco County Libraries

On July 22, 1980, Pasco County Library System (PCLS) was established by Ordinance, Chapter 58, Article II. At that time there were municipal owned and operated libraries in three cities; Dade City, New Port Richey and Zephyrhills. The unincorporated areas of Pasco County had three existing volunteer-led libraries in the communities of Hudson, Holiday, and Land O' Lakes. The city library in Dade City joined the Pasco County Library System in 1981. In 1986, a $10 million bond referendum was passed by Pasco County voters to improve public library services and build new parks countywide. Additional funding for libraries was secured through Federal programs resulting in seven Pasco County Library branches.The City of Zephyrhills library joined with the Pasco County Library System to form a cooperative in 2000.
