The Flowing Wells Library is a 13,000 square foot library at Wetmore & Romero in northwest Tucson.
The library originally opened with just 5,000 square feet on July 28, 2008. When it opened, the individuals and families of the surrounding neighborhoods enthusiastically embraced the library. It was quickly apparent that an expansion was needed to best serve its customers.
In 2017, the library underwent a major renovation, led by award-winning architecture firm, Line and Space LLC. Among the many wonderful changes, the library was expanded to 13,000 square feet (nearly triple its original size!).
Changes made included:
