Flowing Wells Library History

The Flowing Wells Library opened on July 28, 2008, and like the Ellie Towne Community Center across the street, was enthusiastically embraced by the individuals and families of the surrounding neighborhoods. In fact, it became apparent that the original 5,000 square foot library was too small.

Expansion was necessary, and 10 years later, in 2018, the Flowing Wells Library re-opened after a major renovation and expansion led by the award-winning and internationally recognized Tucson architecture firm Line and Space LLC. The tiny library nearly tripled in size to 13,000 square feet.

The renovations included the addition of:

  • A large multipurpose room
  • A room for children’s programming
  • Three study rooms with super-sized monitors for Skype calls, conferencing and collaboration
  • Covered outdoor patio with WiFi access
  • Separate designated spaces for teens and children
  • 2 restrooms
  • New furniture
  • Updated collection
