About the Loula V. York Branch

The branch serves the small but diverse community of Pahokee. This location has a growing collection of Spanish materials for adults and children and offers a wide variety of online resources such as magazine articles, online newspaper resources, and internet access. The branch provides activities for children of all ages. The branch has a computer to help adults learn to read. Tutors and students, and some students on their own, may use library resources to reach their reading goals.
