PHOENIX — The city of Mesa is planning the construction of a new library near Ray and Ellsworth roads in Eastmark, near the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.

The Southeast Mesa Library will provide services to residents with similar amenities as the Main, Red Mountain and Dobson Ranch libraries, according to a press release.

The project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2024 and will cost approximately $16.8 million. It is funded by a General Obligation Bond approved by Mesa voters in 2018, according to the release.

The city is hosting an online public meeting with residents to discuss the library and take questions.

“We are excited to share our vision for Mesa’s newest library and to get feedback from the public,” library director Polly Bonnett said in the release.

The virtual presentation will take place Thursday from 6-7 p.m. Residents can register to attend online.

“We want the Southeast library to be a place for residents to engage with innovative library services, as well as a welcoming space where the community can connect,” Bonnett said.

We want to hear from you.
