The Gulf Beaches Public Libary is a consortium composed of the communities of Treasure Island, Madeira Beach, Redington Beach and North Redington Beach. In 1968, a federal matching grant for a new library was obtained after an intense fundraising campaign for the required local matching funds.
In 1969, this new building was dedicated at the library’s present location, 200 Municipal Drive in Madeira Beach, with the four supporting communities supplemented by the addition of the Town of Redington Shores. In 1988, the library expanded to house its ever-growing collection. A 3,600-square-foot space was added to the existing building to create more shelving and reading space, bringing the total square footage of the library to 10,000. The library was renovated in 2022 thanks to a charitable donation.
In 1989 the Gulf Beaches Public Library became one of the members of the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative (PPLC). The increased cooperation and sharing of resources among the public libraries of Pinellas County have been beneficial to the patrons of the library. Funds made available through PPLC have helped the library to automate its operations, offer materials beyond books such as audio and music CDs and DVDs and to offer internet access to patrons.
