Holiday closure

Both branches of the Casa Grande Public Library will be closed Monday in observance of Presidents Day.

Valentine crafts, prizes, books and fun!

Kids may visit either library to help decorate the library cactus with valentines and then try to guess how many hearts are packed into a container. Take and make Valentine’s Day craft available while supplies last.

Hotspots available

Casa Grande Public Library cardholders can access free, high-speed internet from almost anywhere through the Wi-Fi hotspot lending program. Portable hotspots allow library cardholders who do not have home internet access to easily get online from almost anywhere using a Wi-Fi-enabled device such as a phone, tablet or laptop. A limited number of hotspots are available to check out from each library branch.

Contactless delivery and pickup

The library is now offering contactless delivery and pickup. Library materials will be delivered to and picked from outside your door. No interaction needed. To learn more call 520-421-8652, ext. 5019 or email cglibrary@casagrandeaz.gov.

Books for sale

A small selection of used books and DVDs is available for sale at both the Main and Vista Grande libraries. Hardbacks are $2 each and paperbacks are 50 cents each or three for $1. Proceeds go to the Friends of the Library.

Browse at the library

Both branches of the library are now open to the public for browsing and computer use. The number of people allowed in the buildings is limited to approximately 25% of typical capacity; furniture layout and signage have been modified to promote physical distancing; and computer stations are spaced to maintain distance between patrons. Masks are required in all city facilities.
