PHOENIX — The Dobson Ranch Library in Mesa will close for a month as construction takes place to expand and renovate the facility, the city announced.

The library at 2425 S. Dobson Road will close on Feb. 9 and reopen approximately 30 days later with an extra 1,600 square feet of space and a new place for community innovation and networking known as the THINKspot makerspace, the city of Mesa said in a press release on Thursday.

People will also notice an updated library façade following the closure, which the city said is set to add greater visibility to the building and more convenience.

It marks the largest renovation for the library since it opened in 1987, the city said, with funding coming from a bonds issue approved by voters four years ago.

Mesa has two other libraries that people can go to in the meantime, the city’s main library at 64 East 1st Street and the Red Mountain Branch at 635 N. Power Road.

The libraries are open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and closed on Sundays.
