The Friends of the Maricopa Public Library postponed the Spring Book Sale on Saturday, but the library groundbreaking is still scheduled for 8 a.m.

In a social media post, the library-support group stated: “In light of recent health issues, the Board has voted to postpone our Spring Book Sale until a later unknown date. The decision was not made lightly especially as we had looked forward to our sale coinciding with the City’s Groundbreaking Event for the New Library. The health safety of our members, volunteers, and patrons is our top priority and in following health officials advice of keeping those who fall in the high risk categories safe, and to avoid large crowds in order to reduce exposure, we find postponing will be the wisest course of action at this time.”

The groundbreaking for the new Maricopa Library will start at 8 a.m. on the corner of Bowlin Road and White and Parker Road. Parking will be available in the main City Hall parking lot.
