Woods Memorial Library History

The Woods Memorial Library, which opened in 1968 and was renovated in 1998, is an anchor for the Amphi neighborhood, serving one of the most diverse cultural, racial, and socio-economically communities in Tucson.

The 16,650 square foot library serves as a community center for families, as well as teens and children independently, and hosts numerous library programs and community assistance programs and workshops.

The library, which has the second highest number of visitors in the library system, was named in honor of G. Freeman Woods who served as a Tucson City Councilman for eight years, was a Flowing Wells School Board member for six years, and served on the library advisory board.
