The Library District is supported by a secondary property tax rate of $0.097 per $100 assessed valuation. Each year, the Library District receives State Grants-in-Aid funds for $23,000. This amount is distributed equally among the member libraries and used for library-related expenses and projects. The Pinal County Library District administers support services to twelve affiliate libraries and operates one facility (San Tan Valley). Three libraries are located in unincorporated communities (Arizona City, Oracle, and San Manuel) and are staffed by volunteers. The remaining nine (excluding San Tan Valley) are municipal libraries with paid staff (Apache Junction, Casa Grande, Coolidge, Eloy, Florence, Kearny, Mammoth, Maricopa, and Superior). These twelve libraries are affiliates, not branches. The relationship is established through Intergovernmental Agreements with the county library district, which sets out the terms of cooperation.

You may also renew items through our automated phone line at 520-866-6032 or toll-free at 888-502-4744.
There are several reasons why our online catalog will not accept your hold request. There may be a problem with your account, such as an overdue item or other fines on your account. In addition, libraries typically retain a new item for their patrons' use for six months and some libraries may not lend that particular material type (e.g. DVDs or video games). Each library has its own policy covering which items they will lend to another library and how they deal with fines. This policy may differ from the one at your local public library.
While each library has its own policies, in most cases, please have a valid photo ID and a document with your current mailing address. If, for any reason, you cannot make it to your local library, we do offer a card that grants access exclusively to digital content and online resources, called the Virtual Library Card. To learn more and apply online, view the Library Card page.
