Historical & Genealogical Facilities across Florida will be CLOSING

The Hamilton County, Florida Historical Museum will be closing because of cut backs in County funding.



Tuesday - 8 July 2008
This morning the County Manager's office has informed us that the Polk County Historical Museum and Historical & Genealogical Library are NOT recommended for funding in next year's budget. Unless something changes this means that we will CEASE OPERATIONS on September 30th.



--------------------------------------------------



The building that was the Hamilton county Museum will still be there but it will remain closed.



The Polk County Museum & Library will be closed until fund is found or the collections disappear.



--------------------------------------------------



Are you aware of other closings?

  1. It appears that budget cuts are affecting all Pasco County libraries. New River Library will be issuing all books for a 14 day period. No more 30 days; however, books are renewable if not on a wait list.
