Temple Terrace Public library

The Temple Terrace Public Library originally was established in 1959 by the Temple Terrace Women's Club. It was eventually taken over by the City and a Library Board appointed, making the Library eligible to be part of the Hillsborough County Public Library Cooperative. To learn more about the history, click here.
