Pasco County Library System website to get upgrade

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

The site 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.
