The Putnam-Alachua-Levy (PAL) Public Library Cooperative was created in 2010 when the cooperative members (Putnam County, the Alachua County Library District and Levy County) decided there was a need to bring a higher level of service to their residents. To accomplish this, they entered into an Interlocal agreement among themselves and created the PAL cooperative as an independent special district. This special district is overseen by a governing board made up of two (2) representatives each from the three members, which are appointed by the members’ respective governing authorities. The PAL cooperative is administered by a professional librarian who is a director of one of the member library systems.
The PAL Cooperative’s address is: 401 E. University Ave., Gainesville, Florida 32601.
Our telephone number is 330-328-7157.
