Burton Barr Central Library to reopen after being closed for nearly a year

- The Burton Barr Central Library, which is Phoenix's main public library, will reopen on June 16 after being closed for nearly a year due to flooding.

Phoenix library officials announced on Wednesday that the library will reopen on Saturday, June 16 at 9 a.m.

The Burton Barr Central Library has been closed since June 15, 2017 when it became heavily damaged from a corroded fire-sprinkler pipe that burst during a monsoon storm.

Officials estimated that repair costs to reopen the library would be between $6 and $8 million.
