Quincie Douglas, Woods libraries to close for remodels in April, May

Woods Memorial Library and Quincie Douglas Library will be closed temporarily for new carpet installation and workflow improvements in April and May, official said.

Quincie Douglas Library, 1585 E. 36th St., will close from April 5 through May 17 for workflow improvements, a Pima County Public Library spokeswoman said.

The library should reopen Saturday, May 18, said Holly Schaffer.

Changes at the 10,000-square-foot library will include a new customer service desk, an updated interior book drop and renovations to improve safety and accessibility in the staff area.

At Quincie Douglas, the return book drop will be unavailable during the remodeling. Any items due during the closure will be extended an extra week. Items can be returned to any other library location. Holds not picked up by April 4 will be held for one week after re-opening.

The Woods Memorial Library, 3455 N. 1st Ave., will close from April 17 through May 5 so new carpeting can be installed, she said.

The library should reopen Monday, May 6.

During the closure, carpeting throughout the 16,650-square-foot building will be removed and replaced, including in the meeting room and study rooms.

Support today, because a smarter Tucson is a better Tucson!

The project also includes moving furniture to allow for the creation of an area designed for teens and tweens, and making room for a prominent display of the library's Spanish language collection.

At Woods, holds not picked up by April 16 will be held for one week after re-opening. Items with due dates that fall within the closure will also be extended one week after re-opening. The return book chute will remain open. 

Items cannot be picked up from the libraries while they are closed.
