History

Tucson voters approved a bond package in 2000, which provided the funds necessary to establish a new public library located near the Quincie Douglas Neighborhood Center. The Center opened its doors in May 1999. The $3.5 million Quincie Douglas Branch Library added a public library to the neighborhood center complex.

This new, full-service, stand-alone branch library is 10,000 square feet. The library will have a book collection of 60,000 items, including a variety of books, periodicals, electronic resources, audiotapes, compact discs and reference materials.

The library provides a full range of programs for residents including Homework Help and Storytime programs. Outreach efforts by library staff enhance the public's opportunities for educational and literary-related activities.

The facility also includes a computer lab, study rooms and a meeting room. The meeting room serves as an important community gathering place. This library employs state-of-the-art technology that will broaden learning opportunities.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the new library was held on March 25, 2004. The Quincie Douglas Branch Library opened in Summer 2005.

Public Art

The Pima County Public Library worked with an advisory committee and neighborhood groups to ensure that the new library would be a valuable amenity for the community. Richärd & Bauer Architecture provided the award-winning architectural design.

The artists selected to provide public art for this project are Nina Borgia-Aberle and Stephen Grede. Their entry was determined to best represent the "Building Bridges" theme that was envisioned for the artwork. The finished project will reflect the neighborhoods' commitment to honoring this deeply historical and culturally diverse part of our community.

Seed Library of Pima County Public Library

Seed Library

The Quincie Douglas Library is a Seed Library location.

Pima County Public Library's seed lending library is a collection of edible, decorative, and herb seed varieties that community members may borrow, use to grow plants at home, and then return a portion of the seeds they harvest at the end of the season. Over time, the seed library's collection has become self-sustaining and, most importantly, the seeds are becoming super seeds—strong, resilient, and well adapted to Arizona's harsh climate.

More about borrowing from and contributing to the Seed Library of the Pima County Public Library.
