Library Resources
A wealth of information awaits you at the Eloy Santa Cruz Library. The Library’s automated catalog system allows both simple and complex information searches from any terminal in the system. Customers can choose from books, audio and video cassettes, magazines, new releases, special collections, and more.

To borrow any of these materials, all you need is a Eloy Santa Cruz Library card. Free library cards are available to all residents of Pinal County. To obtain a library card:

  • Visit the Eloy Santa Cruz Library and complete an application.
  • Show Photo ID to verify identity, and present documentation showing current residential address. Acceptable documentation can include rent receipts, electric bills, mail showing name and address, among others. An Arizona Vehicle Operators License will qualify for the Photo ID requirement, but will NOT suffice for proof of residence.
  • If you are under 14, your parent or guardian must provide identification and sign the application.

Computers and Internet Usage
The Eloy Santa Cruz Library offers in-library access to electronic information, services, and networks as part of its mission to meet the information, education and recreation needs of the residents of the Eloy. In order to encourage the responsible use of these resources by our customers, the Library has established an Acceptable Use Policy and agreement. Prior to using these resources, patrons must sign this agreement stating they understand and will abide by the provisions and conditions of the Acceptable Use Policy.

Patron Responsibilities
Your card can be used in all public libraries throughout Pinal County. If you lose your card, please call us immediately at 520-466-3814. There is a nominal replacement fee of $1.

Check Out Period
All materials may be checked out for two weeks. Patrons needing longer may renew material for up to two additional two-week periods. Reserved material, Interlibrary Loan items, Video Games and Videos may not be renewed. Material may be renewed online through the Pinal County Library District System by going to the Patron Account tab or over the phone.

Prompt return of library materials ensures everyone better access. To help us provide optimum service to all our customers, we employ an extended use fine system. If your materials become overdue, we will contact you by the method you have set for your library account; the default will be automatic phone messaging if no method has been chosen by you. FINES are assessed from the first day past due on a per day, per item basis as follows:

Books, popular books, paperbacks, audio cassettes and kits 10 Cents per day
Interlibrary loan material One Dollar per day

For unreturned items, there will be a processing fee added to the replacement cost of the item(s). Failure to return items will also necessitate restriction of library privileges.

Check Out Levels
As new patrons are issued a borrower’s card, they will be limited to borrowing two (2) items from the library’s circulating collection. After those materials are returned the following parameters will be in force at any given time:

Video   2 items
Audio   4 items
Books  (Limit 4 per subject in non-fiction)   10 items

Collection Development Principles
The Eloy Santa Cruz Library welcomes customers of all ages and cultural backgrounds, and realizes that they have diverse needs, interests, value systems and reading abilities.

The Library’s service to children is designed to stimulate the desire for lifelong learning, to develop a love for reading, to provide opportunities for parent-child sharing and interaction, and to offer supplementary resources for school assignments.

The Library encourages parents to accompany their children to the library, and supports parent’s rights and responsibilities to guide their children’s reading and viewing of materials.

Trained staff is provided to assist parents and children to access and choose the most appropriate materials. The Library does not make a determination of what children should read, view, or borrow. The Library does not act in loco parentis, but rather provides materials, programming, and a physical environment that support parent’s and children’s search for diverse materials and ideas

NOTE: Not all materials will be suitable for, or of interest to, all segments of the community.
