This summer, while the De Beque Branch transitions to a new home in the new De Beque School, Mesa County Libraries will serve the De Beque community with a pop-up library that will be open in Gazebo Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Friday. Gazebo Park is on Minter Avenue across from the Community Center, 381 Minter Ave.
The De Beque Pop-Up Library consists of a Mesa County Libraries van carrying a small browsing collection. Patrons will be able to pick up and place holds, return materials, check out materials from the browsing collection, and sign up for Summer Reading. Children’s story time takes place at 11 a.m. each Friday in the park gazebo.
Wi-Fi service and public laptops and iPads are available during pop-up library hours.
Mesa County Libraries anticipate opening the new branch in the De Beque School in early August, after school construction is completed.
