COVID-19 Closure information - updated May 18, 2020

In response to concerns relating to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Scottsdale Public Library will close all branches effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020 until further notice. Limited library services will be available. See below for more information.

Libraries help communities in times of need and it was difficult for us to make this decision. Libraries are built to be a community gathering place and this made it difficult to practice and enforce social distancing. The mission of the Scottsdale Public Library is Putting People at the Heart of Dynamic Library Services. The health and wellbeing of our community are our top priority.
