Rocky Bluff Library US 301 in Ellenton

Unique building looks like a castle surrounded by ponds. Pleasant helpful lady takes me to computers on back wall, which has long line of framed drawings.

At the entrance there’s a vestibule with couch and easy chair surrounded by historic documents and photos.

About a mile east of I-75 on US 301. The Ellenton Cafe is across the street


Punta Gorda Public Library 424 West Henry Street

I make frequent stops at this neat suburban library in a quiet neighborhood.  Only a few blocks west of US 41 AKA Tamiami Trail.

Entrance faces east. Building is a bit small but has all you need for online work or leisure. There is no need for a library card to go online, as guest passes are available at the information desk, just grab one

A good place to hide from traffic or the hot Florida sun for a while.


SouthShore Regional Library 15816 Beth Shields Way Ruskin, FL 33573 Your review

Money well-spent here. Huge library out in the South Hillsborough County countryside. Cows still line the road coming in from US 301, and the building is entirely surrounded by greenery.

Art lovers welcome here as there are many paintings by local artists on display. Twice had to ask for guest pass, and the two young ladies were pleasant and friendly. Separate snack room with tables and chairs surrounded by vending machines.
