Welcome to the “New” Kearny Public Library

Kearny Public Library received its new paint job and landscaping, thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers.

In memory of Abby McDougal, who painted the original mural in 2007, we kept the mural but brightened up the colors.

This is just one of the changes coming to our Library, and we invite you to come in and check them out.


Digitization StationNew Digitization Station

Check out our new Digitation Station, provided by a grant received by the Pinal County Library System. We now have every thing that you need to make digital copies of VHS & audio cassettes, photographs, slides, and documents, on the spot.

There is no cost to use the equipment, except $1 for blank DVDs or CDs and a nominal cost for new flash drives (which haven’t arrived yet) if you need them. And it is “do it yourself.” We will show you what to do, but the rest is up to you, as we will not have time to do it for you.
We hope to use this Station to complete our Local History Project as well.

TV donated by the Keary Police Department

Kearny Police Department Donates a TV

We would like to thank the Kearny Police Department and Sgt. Blue for donating this fine TV to the library, and to the Town Crew for putting it up for us.

We plan on using it for our Summer Reading Program as well as demonstrations, and for groups or organization that need it.

We also have a brand new Blu-Ray/DVD player purchased by the Pinal County Library System.
