Library closed until further notice.

The City of Apache Junction is taking measures to protect its residents and help combat the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, the Library is following the recommendations of the federal government by limiting social gatherings amidst COVID-19 concerns, and is closed until further notice.

To continue meeting the needs of our community during the interruption, we’re offering modified services and promoting online resources. As the situation around COVID-19 evolves, we will continually reassess our plans.

The Media Bank remains open, and we encourage you to check out our many virtual resources, such as e-books, music, video, and audiobooks at: https://www.ajpl.org/.

You can check your account, renew items, and search our catalog online. Need help downloading e-materials? Call (480) 474-8555, and ask for a computer assistant to help you with the process.
