San Jose Annex
The Copper Queen Library will begin offering curbside pickup of holds starting Monday, May 18, 2020, barring any changes to the COVID-19 Pandemic and orders from Governor Ducey. To place your holds, patrons can use the online catalog or call the Library at 520-432-4232. Also, only items shelved in the Main Library will be available for checkout, as the county courier service which delivers materials from other libraries will be unavailable at the time. Please note, that for the safety of our staff and patrons, during Phase 1 of our reopening, the library building will remain closed to the public. Patrons are also instructed to return all their library materials themselves to the 4 return boxes located at the Post Office Entrance of the Main Library, the Senior Center, the Boys and Girls Club (Arizona Street) and the Annex. Staff will be unable to accept any returns in person. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
This project is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Tutors are available at the Annex on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 - 5:30 PM during the school year.
