The library system is utilized by residents throughout the county. On average 418,000 items are checked out each year. In 2004, the Library Services Department undertook a massive expansion and renovation project that benefited both the Avon Park and Lake Placid Libraries.  A library card is free to anyone who lives in the five Heartland Library Cooperative counties: DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Highlands, and Okeechobee. Each library provides Wi-Fi and Internet access, and availability of over 300,000 items from books to compact discs, internet databases, online courses, genealogy and e-content materials.

For citizens committees, I did not see a current vacancy or a description for Board membership for the Heartland Library Cooperative. There used to be a listing and an opening spot in the hcbcc page. (How do you want to handle this?)

Bylaws, interlocal agreement, policies, agendas, minutes or resource links, members list. are available on the Heartland Library Cooperative web site (
