MESA, AZ — A brand new and far wide-range Children’s Library is now open for kids and adults to enjoy at Main Library, 64 E. First St. The children’s reading and play space, which was funded by a voter-approved bond issue, was inspired by Arizona Wildlife.

John Giles, Mesa Mayor, believes the new Children’s Library, with many fun educational features, is a wonderful addition to the Mesa Main Library and will be suitable for the entire family.

The Children’s Library features consist of a child-size and adult-size, sculpted Arizona rock formations, entrances leading to a story time stage, reading nooks, event room, early childhood development area, and video projections games.

Mesa’s Vice Mayor believes the new Children’s Library will definitely be a place where not only children, but also parents, can bond, make memories and learn together. “The new Children’s Library is truly a point of pride for Mesa,” she added.

Colorful artworks inspired by the Arizona wildlife grace the Children’s Library. The wayfinding mark is present in the form of animal tracks, which lead visitors from the event room, lots of inspiring books, to other fun new features.

Heather Wolf, Mesa Public Library Director, credited the Library Staff effort and its partners to make this improvement happen. This renovation is the biggest renovation the Library has had since 1998.

"More than providing a wow factor for our visitors, it enhances the library experience for children," Heather Wolf said.

In 2018, Messa voters passed the Parks and Culture Bonds issue, which funded the New Children’s Library.

“We are very grateful to Mesa voters for making this dream come true,” Mesa Mayor said
