Dusenberry-River Library to close temporarily for refresh

Update July, 2020: We hope to reopen in August, 2020. Thank you for your patience!

(TUCSON, Ariz.) – The Dusenberry-River Library, located at 5605 E. River Rd., Ste 105, will close temporarily beginning March 1 while improvements are made to the Library’s interior. We expect to reopen in early- to mid-June, but a final date has not been confirmed.  

Among the changes to be made at the Library:

  • Updates to teen and children’s areas
  • Additional seating
  • New service desk
  • Public restroom improvements
  • New flooring and new paint throughout

Please note, the return book chute will not be open during the closure. Items can be returned to any other library location. In addition, items cannot be reserved for pick up at this location. If you currently have an existing hold, please change the pickup location to your next nearest library. 

Customers who would like to donate books can drop them off directly at the Friends of the Pima County Public Library warehouse (2230 N. Country Club Rd., map).

Library Manager, Dianna Thor, says, “We want our customers to feel great when they use the library. These changes will brighten up the space and make it more welcoming than it already is. We appreciate everyone’s patience while we make these much-needed improvements.”
