The 25,000 square foot New Tampa Regional Library is located on Cross Creek Boulevard adjacent to a small lake and wooded area to the south which offers a panoramic view of a natural Florida habitat from the public reading room. Open seven days a week, the library houses a comprehensive circulating collection in multiple formats and a wide variety of programs and services. In addition to a large community room and story time room, four smaller meeting rooms are available for programs, meetings, quiet study and literacy tutoring. A public makerspace, The Hive, offers unique tools, activities and events for hands-on learning.

History:

The New Tampa Regional Library, designed by Harvard Jolly Clees Toppe Architects and funded by a .10-mill property tax levy, the $4.4 million facility was built on 3.6 acres donated by Markborough Florida Inc., through the efforts of Britt Greene. The New Tampa Regional Library was dedicated May 4, 1997.

The Jeri Zelinski Community Room, named in honor of the woman who worked tirelessly to bring a library to the New Tampa community, was dedicated posthumously on September 25, 2004. Zelinski, a retired librarian, led petition drives, formed alliances and prodded developers to donate land for the library.
