As construction progresses on the Main Library Renovation Project, some services will be moved and some will have limited access.  Please bear with us as we look to continue serving our community through the process of bringing you a beautifully renovated Main Branch. 

Changes are coming to Main Library

In anticipation of the City's Mexican American Cultural Center co-location project, Main Library will undergo a renovation creating new collection/service/work spaces. The renovation will affect Border Heritage's collection availability throughout its duration since Border Heritage will be moved temporarily to Main Library's Mezzanine. As space will be limited, only a small portion of Border Heritage materials will be available throughout the renovation.

This selection is expected to include:

Border Heritage will continue to offer reference services and research assistance (in a limited capacity) as well.

Border Heritage's archival materials and special collections will be unavailable throughout the renovation. These include:

Currently, access to Border Heritage's Reference Southwest Collection and archival materials will are limited.

The Perrenot Room and all of its contents (Reference Southwest, archival materials, etc.) are currently inaccessible until Main Library reopens after the renovation.

We thank you for your past patronage, and look forward to your continued visits throughout the renovation! Please contact Border Heritage with any questions or concerns and for additional information.
