During the summer, 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 beginning May 26. Gazebo Park is on Minter Avenue across from the Community Center, 381 Minter Ave.
On Friday, May 26, the pop-up library will debut at Gazebo Park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., followed by a Summer Reading Kickoff Party featuring magician Ann Lincoln at 2 p.m. in the Community Center.
The De Beque Pop-Up Library will consist 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 will take place at 11 a.m. each Friday in the park gazebo.
Wi-Fi service and public laptops and iPads will be 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.
