About the Cooperative

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 managed by a professional librarian who serves as its Single Administrative Head.
