About the Event
Hillsborough County libraries are celebrating 100 years of service to the community! To demonstrate why our libraries are so special, the Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System is collecting items through Library History Roadshow events to add to a digital archive celebrating the history of our community.
At each Library History Roadshow event, current and former users of the featured library are invited to bring their photos, memorabilia, artifacts, and stories of the library to share. Recorded memories and scanned items will be added to the ever-growing Library History Collection of the library's new Digital Collections.
Join us Saturday, March 8 from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at the SouthShore Regional Library to view and share library photographs, memorabilia and stories.
About the Library
The 25th and largest library branch in Hillsborough County, the SouthShore Regional Library, serves a growing and diverse population in the south county area. The library was completed in October of 2006 and held a grand opening in November of that year.
Enthusiastically supported by its patrons and the Friends of the SouthShore Regional Library, the facility features a Genealogy Center, Children's Library, bookstore and the John Crawford Art Education Studio. The Jim Harkins Plaza, a special outdoor area for library programming and reading in the fresh air was completed and dedicated in May of 2012.
