In order to protect the health and safety of employees, staff, and students, all those who access Pasco County School locations must self-screen for symptoms and other risk factors of COVID-19 daily. If you answer YES to any of the questions, you should NOT be on campus. Access the Visitor Screener or the Student Screener online. Employees should use the Employee Self-Screener.

Pasco County Library System now has the app CloudLibrary. This app makes enjoying the library easier than ever. Use the app to browse and borrow a new collection of ebooks and audiobooks, skip the line by using your smartphone to check materials out from within the stacks, and never forget your library card again with a virtual library card. This free service is available to all Pasco County library patrons. Learn more about CloudLibrary here: http://bit.ly/PascoCloudLibrary

The library has a number of virtual and curbside programs for all ages. Our schedule can be found at https://www.pascolibraries.org/events/events-calendar/ and all our programs are free. Since many of them are virtual, it would be easy for you to participate in programs at our other branches as well.

Last Saturday, we had DIY Take and Make Crafts for Pre-Teens (grades 4-6) and we still have some left. It is a Book Hedgehog craft. Supplies are limited and no library cards required.

Also, on April 20th, we start registration for Tinkering Tuesday: I Got the Blues (Grades K-5). In this “Tinkering Tuesdays” program series, we will explore the theme BLUE using crafts and STEAM activities to help young learners explore the world around them. Available to 35 participants. Kids can register here: https://www.pascolibraries.org/events/events-calendar

We are celebrating National Poetry Month and we had posted a few of our favorite poems on Facebook. Here’s the link to that playlist: https://www.facebook.com/watch/136066226459935/274758694106988

We had also created virtual book displays for National Poetry Month. If you click on the book covers, it will take you to our electronic catalog. Then you can place a hold on the book with your Pasco County Library Card. Many of the books on display are newer books.
