    libraryThe Pima County Board of Supervisors on June 19 unanimously approved the acquisition of a property from Sahuarita Unified School District for $621,509. Purchasing this property will allow the County to build the Sahuarita Regional Library in a central location accessible to Sahuarita residents. 

    “The Sahuarita Regional Library will be a vibrant center for community connection with programs and services for people of all ages,” said Pima County Public Library Deputy Director Michelle Simon. “Sahuarita residents have eagerly anticipated the construction of this library and we look forward to becoming an integral link in the fabric of the community.”

    The purchased property is currently located in the Sahuarita School District Campus. Once built, the library’s close proximity to the existing schools will provide for easy accessibility to students and residents alike. Simon added the location will also be conducive to collaborative partnerships with the local school district, community organizations, and the Town of Sahuarita.

    Construction of the Sahuarita Regional Library is expected to begin in 2019. 

    The purchase price of the property at $621,509 reflects a middle point between two recent appraisals. The Library District’s appraisal came back at $560,000 and the Sahuarita School District’s at $675,000.
