More Events


The Town 'N Country Regional Public Library began operation in 1969 as the West Gate Branch Library in a storefront at the West Gate Shopping Center. The library moved to a new building on Paula Drive in the spring of 1975. The branch was a test site for the library system's first automated circulation system in 1986. West Gate Branch Library became a regional library in 1995. On March 15, 2007, after 32 years of operation, the Paula Drive location closed to make way for construction of the Town 'N Country Commons and the library reopened with a new name in 2008.

Friends of the Library

The Town 'N Country Regional Public Library has an active Friends group, who as staunch supporters and advocates of library programs and services, maintain the Bargain Street Bookstore. The bookstore offers great bargains on gently used books, and all proceeds benefit the library. Bookstore hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.


The Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners approved renaming the library the "Town 'N Country Regional Public Library" on May 16th, 2007. The new library, a 28,000 square foot facility, became part of the Town 'N Country Commons, a two story complex that also houses a Head Start facility, a Senior Center and is adjacent to Shimberg Gardens. Construction was completed in 2008 and the Town 'N Country Commons had a Grand Opening ceremony on December 3, 2008.
