(TUCSON, Ariz.) – The Kirk-Bear Canyon Library, at 8959 E. Tanque Verde Road, will be closed April 18–20 while the carpet is replaced.

For these three days, the return book chute will be closed and reserves will be unavailable for pick up. Reserves will be held an extra few days past the closure so that customers have their full seven open days to pick them up.

The Library is expected to reopen on Friday, April 21.

While the Library undergoes carpet replacement, customers are encouraged to visit the following locations nearby:

Dusenberry-River Library: 5605 E. River Road, Suite 105
Murphy-Wilmot Library: 530 N. Wilmot Road
Miller-Golf Links Library: 9640 E. Golf Links Road

Since January 1991 the Kirk-Bear Canyon Library, located at the corner of Tanque Verde and Bear Canyon Roads, has served both city and county residents. The 11,200 square foot building was funded mostly by Pima County bonds approved by voters in May 1986. An expansion in 2005 added a new computer lab, a teen area, more study rooms, a larger meeting room, and more seating areas for the public.

The Library is named after James Lee “Jim” Kirk (1926–2003) who served three terms on the Tucson City Council and was the Pima County Treasurer for eight terms.
