Free book exchange to help underserved Dade City communities

Pasco County Libraries Awarded ‘Little Free Libraries’

Pasco County Libraries is proud to announce Hugh Embry Library as the recipient of two Little Free Libraries (LFL), awarded through the Little Free Library’s Impact Library Program for November 2021! 

The program provides free LFL book exchange stands to communities with members who face economic and social barriers and find it difficult to reach the library.  With the Hugh Embry library undergoing renovations, the stands also provide book resources to those not able to travel to other libraries.

The two Dade City communities receiving LFLs are:

  • Lacoochee
  • Tommytown

“The Little Free Libraries have been a special project of the Friends of Hugh Embry Library for years, already funding five LFLs,” said Librarian Angelo Liranzo.  “Library team members are working with the Friends to reach our community partners in both winning communities as we await the soon-to-arrive LFLs.” 

Friends of the Hugh Embry Library and Library staff dedicated themselves to researching and apply for the grant opportunity to obtain the LFLs.
