Gateway Mall Branch of Prescott Library Closing Its Doors

23 February 2012   Normalene Zeeman

Prescott Library Gateway Mall branch to close March 8.

After ten years of providing service to east Prescott, the Prescott Gateway Branch Library will close at 5 p.m. Thursday, March 8. Light refreshments will be available on the last day for those who wish to say goodbye to Lisa at the Gateway Branch. Gateway staff will return to their other duties at the Downtown Library after March 8, so you can always visit them there.

Library Director Toni Kaus says “Given current economic conditions, this consolidation of services is sad, but necessary. We are grateful to Westcor and Prescott Gateway Mall for ten years of partnering with the City of Prescott to provide library services.”

Many other locations exist for patrons to pick up or return library items. The book lockers at the Community Center at 1280 East Rosser Street are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If patrons choose the “Prescott Community Center” as their pickup location when they place a hold, they will be able to collect their books there.

Book drops at the Community Center and the Lee Blvd Fire Station make for easy return of library materials. Other book drop locations are listed on the library webpage under “How Do I?/Return a Book.” Patrons can find the most convenient drop or visit the Downtown Library at 215 East Goodwin Street and use “Lucy” the hi-tech drive-by book return on the south side of the library.

All holds will revert to the Prescott Downtown location starting on February 27. Patrons can call 777-1500 and ask to have their holds sent to another location.

Prescott Public Library serves more than 500,000 residents and visitors a year. Check the library's webpage at, visit any service desk or call 777-1500 for more information.
