Upcoming Events


Art and literature honoring people living with HIV

To commemorate World AIDS Day, library programming during the month of December will celebrate the lives of people living with HIV in Phoenix, remember those who are no longer with us, and tell the history of the city's response to the HIV epidemic. A diverse range of HIV-related art, storytelling, book selections, film presentations, performances, and education sessions will be presented through January 7, 2020. Panels of the National AIDS Quilt will also be displayed.

We want to showcase local talent and encourage artists to submit their work to us to have it considered for the exhibit. Click here and follow the instructions on how to submit your work to be reviewed.

There's a multitude of events planned throughout the month of December, including a "Kick-off Press Conference" by the Mayor's office on Saturday, December 7th from 11:00am to 11:30am.
