Enjoy a Library Program from the Comfort of Your Home
Ordinarily we would be hosting programs in our locations allowing our visitors to find their place at the library. For the time being, as we prioritize the health and safety of our staff, customers and communities, we are pleased to be able to continue our quality program offerings, even without hosting visits in our buildings. We have a wide choice of programing selections (with more to come!) providing opportunities for you to experience Phoenix Public Library, in this way you can find your library in your place!
We make it one of our priorities to provide access to trusted and researched insight and resources for all those seeking a rewarding experience, or more knowledge, or wanting more information for planning or making decisions. Join us in a live online book club discussion, or learn more about navigating social security, and more!
One Book | One Phoenix
This year's annual Phoenix Public Library One Book | One Phoenix is a chance to join your community this summer (from home!) in reading one of three books (one for adults, one for teens, and one for kids) and in participating in programs. Join us for book discussions, live story telling sessions, learn crafts, and more.
