Beginning Monday, Dec. 21, 13 Pima County libraries will close due to the increased spread of COVID-19.

Library officials said the remaining 11 libraries will only be open for curbside and holds pickups. No one will be allowed into the libraries.

The library system will not accept new holds. If a patron does not want to pick up their holds the library will keep them until Feb. 1. All due dates were extended until the same date.
