The Pima County Public Library (PCPL) acknowledges the sovereignty of Native Nations and acknowledges the twenty-two federally recognized Indigenous tribes of the state of Arizona and those who inhabit Pima County. We honor the vast and often unrecognized contributions and sacrifices of Indigenous people and are conscious of the ongoing experience of inequality and political invisibility. In partnership with Native Nations, PCPL advocates for full access to its educational, informational and recreational resources.

The Library denounces racism and violence towards people of color.
COVID-19 is continuing to make people sick. Pima County recommends you wear a mask while inside the library:
- In common areas, lobbies, and elevators.
- When proper physical distancing is not possible (less than 6 feet).
- In areas where there is not a protective barrier.
We have masks if you need them.
