Library Closing


The library, including the Data Resource Center, will close this summer for new interior paint and carpeting. It is expected that the closure will begin on July 25 and last for approximately seven weeks.

Checkouts of physical items (books, DVDs, CD Audiobooks, magazines, etc.) will not be possible during the closure. All library materials must be returned to the library by July 20. The exterior book and media return boxes will not be open after that date. Paperback books may be borrowed before the closure and may be read during the time the library is closed.

Digital items (eBooks, digital audiobooks, and magazines) will continue to circulate. Staff and volunteers are available now to help you learn how to borrow digital items. Call 623-544-6644 to make an appointment.

A small library outlet will be open in the Stampede Meeting Room of the Men’s Club Building (19803 N. R. H. Johnson Blvd., between the new Pickleball courts and the Auto Restoration Club). The outlet will be open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. most, but not all, Tuesdays through Fridays from July 25 to September 8. The outlet will not be available July 27; August 10, 15, 24, and 31; and September 5 and 6.

The outlet will offer you an air-conditioned room to continue to meet and converse with fellow residents. Here you will be able to access online resources such as IQ Trends, Value Line Investment Research Center, Morningstar Investment Research Center, Ancestry, Financial Times, Barron’s, and Consumer Reports. You will be able to read daily newspapers and many current magazines. You may assemble moderate-sized jigsaw puzzles, and play chess or Scrabble.

The outlet is not large enough to accept book returns or donations. Please bring these to the library by July 20.

Library groups will continue to meet on their normal schedule in the library during June and most of July and in the Stampede Room (when available) during August.

Beginning Chess (kids and adults) 9 – 10 a.m. Tuesdays

Legos     9:30 a.m. Tuesdays

Scrabble     10 a.m. Thursdays

Chess     9 a.m. Fridays
