Pasco County Library System website to get upgrade

Pasco County library patrons will get a new, improved website starting April 1.

The site www.PascoLibraries.org will boast a new look, simplified navigation and other enhancements.

"It's mobile friendly," said Nancy Frederick, libraries administrator. "Our society in general is moving toward mobile devices."

Officials say the site will provide easy access to the library catalog, e-book collections and events. It will also be customizable to each specific branch.

Patrons can set a branch page as the homepage of the site and see a listing of events specific to their library. The site also includes special interest pages for children, teens and seniors.

As always, users will be able to log in to their individual library accounts to renew materials and place holds on items in the catalog.

The new site will also feature a color change. Instead of purple, visitors will see orange. blue and white. Those match the colors of the county's site, officials explained.

The last time the county redesigned the site was more than 10 years ago, administrator Kevin Griffith said. It will be the third redesign overall.

    BROOKSVILLE — Efforts by state officials to set a minimum flow for its iconic springs have stirred up a wave of public opposition. Opponents contend the state is willing to destroy its springs in order to justify continuing to provide water for new development.

    Tourism

    Cruises and commercial flights now link Tampa and Havana, but before the U.S. government approved either for such journeys, ferries had the nod.

    Baja Ferries was among a handful of companies the U.S. government approved to service Cuba two years ago.
But Cuba's ambassador to the United States recently said the wait may be long. Ferries are not a high priority for Cuba.
This is an example of one of the overnight passenger ferries the  Baja Ferries wanted  to use to reach Cuba from Florida.
