The Land O’ Lakes Branch Library is feeling the love from Hulafrog families who voted in an annual survey for favorite library, according to a press release from Pasco County.
Hulafrog is an online resource that connects area parents to local kid-friendly events and businesses.
The Land O’ Lakes library, at 2818 Collier Parkway, won top spot among other libraries in Wesley Chapel, Lutz and New Tampa. Residents who are subscribers to Hulafrog voted in the annual “most loved awards” survey.
Other categories included “Most loved learning center,” “Most loved kid-friendly restaurant,” and “Most loved pediatrician.”
Among the fun and educational programs available at the Land O’ Lakes library are the Play, Make, Discover! Program on Saturdays; Tinkering Tuesdays every second Tuesday in the month; and weekly story times for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
“We’re extremely proud to be recognized by the community we serve and to know that our patrons love us as much as we love them,” said Kathleen Rothstein, in a statement from the press release. Rothstein is regional branch manager at the Land O’ Lakes library.
Two suburban mothers in New Jersey launched Hulafrog in 2010. Since then, Hulafrog has expanded to about 100 markets in 2,200 cities in 28 states. Florida has 75 Hulafrog communities on the Internet.
