Pasco County Library System - Free, Enjoyable, and Nearby - Hard to Beat That!

When I first moved to the Zephyrhills and Pasco County in 1982 it was still pretty much a quiet part of the state. Much of that ambience still remains. However, in several ways it has grown and improved. We have more schools, a community college, more subdivisions & inhabitants, etc. Time marches on, even here.

However, one of our best improvements has been the growth of the Pasco County Library System. We now have several branches throughout the county for everyone to enjoy. And in most, books to lend are just a small part of what they offer. To visit the webpage for the entire Pasco library system just CLICK HERE .  On this page you can find all of the locations and their hours of operations. Also, information on any special activities they offer for persons of all ages. These change over time so it pays to check back from time-to-time. So bookmark or make a favorite of their site. As a former teacher, I can assure any parents and grandparents out there that your local library is an invaluable asset for your youngsters! You have no idea the benefits it can have on kids.

But here, I want to give you information about the two branches that most of us in Zephyrhills use.

Zephyrhills Public Library

Zephyrhills City Library Branch

This was originally just the city library, but is now incorporated into the county system. Located downtown near City Hall it is conveniently located for city inhabitants and people who live on the far eastern side of the county. There is plenty of parking nearby and the site is easily accessible.

It is located at: 5347 8th Street. The telephone number for this branch is: 813-780-0064. Its hours are:

  • Monday - Closed
  • Tuesday to Friday - 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM

New River Branch Library

New River Library Building

For those residents that live on west side of Zephyrhills, you may want to drop in at the New River Library Branch. It is just to the west of the intersection of Morris Bridge Road/Eiland Boulevard and State Road 54 (Not far from our CENTURY 21 office). This location is also where many of us vote early each year since it also has been serving as a polling site for some time.

Its address is: 34043 State Road 54, Zephyrhills, Florida. Telephone number: 813-788-6375.  Its hours are:

  • Thursday - 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM
  • Tuesday and Wednesday - 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
  • Friday and Saturday - 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
  • Sundays and Mondays - Closed
