The main branch of the Mesa Public Library on First Street just got a major remodel and it is amazing, to say the least! We checked it out and the kids got their first library cards.
The Mesa Library has many online resources available for kids here. From homework help, books, to online activities for all ages, create your own online account for lots of great resources. There are storytimes including baby time (birth to 16 months), toddler time (16 to 36 months), and preschool storytime (3 to 5 years). You can see the schedule here.
The library also offers cultural passes, limit one per family, places are varied, and check online who is offering passes right now. Other library offerings can be found here.
So many books available from board books, to learn to read, chapter books, teens, and more. I like that a variety of board books were off to one side if you need to sit with a new reader or grab a quick book to start reading.
So many great spots to curl up and read a book, or ten if you are my kids!
Just imagine the storytimes that will be told in this great space!
Some of my favorite things about the library were the simple details like this holiday section. How nice to be able to view the variety of holiday books and either read them there or take some home to read.
The Teen Zone
Looking forward to this “Restored books” area to open up. There was a little of everything from magazines, toddler books, preschool books, fiction, nonfiction.
Great Holds area for you to run in and pick up books right in front of the library.
I LOVE this map of the valley and the kids had fun trying to find cities and places we have been. Could be such a great way to teach kids about distance and so much more.
Murals were gorgeous and so much fun to discover in the library. We recommend visiting the Mesa Public Library on First Street for sure! More great things to do in Mesa can be found here.
