"Bargains to Go"
A Special Membership Benefit
As a compliment to the Library's pandemic offering of "Books to Go", this new benefit enables a member to expand their personal research library with purchases from the large inventory of surplus books in the Genealogy Library.
The hundreds of books that are available at bargain prices can be found in the Library Catalog section of our website. Searching for "SURPLUS" as a call number, or "BARGAIN" as a title will reveal not only a treasure of genealogy books, but many interesting non-genealogy books also. To make your purchase, call the Library at (520) 648-4016 Monday through Saturday from 9AM to 12 Noon -- a friendly volunteer will help you. The only method of delivery during the pandemic is retrieving a brown bag from a designated spot outside the Library and leaving your payment in the form of a personal check in a box at the site. The entire transaction will be no-contact, guaranteeing safety for all.
