Hyde Park Branch Library

On Saturday, November 19, the Library History Roadshow made a stop at the Old Hyde Park Art Center. This historic building was home to the Hyde Park Branch Library from 1922-1968. We were very lucky to receive the old library sign from North Tampa Library volunteer Debbie Wooten, whose mother used to work on the bookmobile. Click on the slideshow below to see scenes from the Roadshow and to listen to Debbie's recorded memory about how she acquired this sign.

Library Aide Bunny Pearce shares her memories of Hyde Park Library in this video:

The Library History Roadshow will be stopping at branches throughout the system to find more library treasures like this sign. Our next Roadshow will be at Port Tampa City Library on Saturday, January 14, from 10am-3pm.
