Parker County Library Association
Welcome to Your Libraries
The Parker County Library Association (PCLA) consists of the Azle Memorial Library, Weatherford Public Library, Springtown Public Library, and the East Parker County Library. PCLA libraries are working together to provide you with better access to materials and services. Each library offers a variety of books, movies, audiobooks. Some PCLA libraries offer specialty collections, such as music CDs and kits. By sharing resources, the PCLA is able to give you easy access to a collection of about 175,000 items. Also available at no charge are information search assistance, high-speed Internet access, and quality educational programs.
Library cards from Azle will work at all other PCLA libraries, with the exception of Weatherford.
Note: Beginning in 2021, residents who reside INSIDE Weatherford City limits may obtain a (free) library card from Weatherford Public Library in order to check out book in person from their location. Residents who live OUTSIDE of Weatherford City limits must pay a $50 non-resident fee to obtain a card from the Weatherford Public Library in order to check out books from their library in person. Both free and non-resident cards obtained at the Weatherford Public Library will work at the Azle Memorial Library. Additionally, books from Weatherford can still be sent through the courier to pick up in Azle for any PCLA library cardholder at no charge (as described below).
Materials from any of the PCLA libraries, including Weatherford, can be sent back and forth for library users to check out at no charge. For example, a book that belongs to the Springtown Library can be delivered to the Azle Library, per patron request. When a requested item arrives at its destination, the library user will be notified that it is available. The library user may then check out and return the item in Azle. Once returned, the item will be sent back to the Springtown Library. Additionally, materials borrowed from any PCLA library may be returned to any other PCLA library. Materials are delivered via courier on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
