Tavares – The East Lake Mini library will open on Monday, Aug. 29 at the East Lake Sports & Community Complex.
This is a temporary facility for the East Lake County Library to serve the Sorrento community and surrounding areas. The facility will house a browsable, 2,000 book collection. The building will be open Monday – Thursday and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and will be closed on Fridays and Sundays.
In the next 6 to 8 months, the library will move into a larger modular facility on the grounds of the East Lake Sports & Community Complex. This will be home to the East Lake County Library until the library can expand into the custom-built permanent location.
In the next few months, the Lake County Office of Library Services will host community meetings to discuss the permanent location with area residents. Following discussions, the project will go through bid, design, and construction. The permanent location will be constructed at the East Lake Sports & Community Complex and is expected to be opened in the next 3 to 4 years.
