Community Resources


Thanks to a Library Services and Technology Act grant through the Arizona State Library, we have been able to provide a Community Service Specialist to assist patrons with navigating community resources.  With this new service, patrons will receive personalized one-to-one attention and assistance with completing applications or connecting to needed resources.  All patrons are welcome to utilize this compassionate and confidential service.

To make a one-to-on appointment with our Community Service Specialist please visit the Ask a Librarian Desk, call 928.777.1526 or email us

*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.
