The Hugh Embry Library, 14215 Fourth St., in Dade City, as of June 26 is closed for remodeling.
The library’s new look will include a complete floor-to-ceiling renovation, with updated technology, new furnishings, high-efficiency air conditioning and high-speed internet.
The modernized interior will offer new spaces for adults, teens and kids, meeting spaces, and a central service desk.
The extensive work is expected to begin soon.

“Most of the libraries were built in the 1980s, and we’re excited to completely reimagine the library experience for everyone in Pasco County,” said Bob Harrison, libraries program manager, in a news release.
The renovations are part of the General Obligation Bond (GO Bond) Referendum that Pasco County voters passed in November 2018.
The library is expected to reopen in the spring of 2022.
Patrons can continue to check out books and other materials at open library locations throughout the county, including the newly renovated New River and Centennial Park branches.
The South Holiday Library also remains closed for remodeling.
