Plans Announced for Mesa FamilySearch Library: Finally!

A news article on announced the plans for the renovation of the Mesa, Arizona Temple and the addition of a combined Visitor Center and Family Discovery Center. Here is a quote from the article entitles, "Major Renovation Planned for Mesa Arizona Temple."
As part of the renovation, the visitors’ center will be demolished, and a new center will be rebuilt across the street on the southwest corner of Lesueur and Main Street. It will be home to various interactive exhibits and events, historical information about the temple, and family history research and teaching facilities.
No other details are apparently available at this time. The place where the new building will be built is presently a mostly vacant lot.

This ends years of speculation and questions about the fate of the very popular and busy Mesa FamilySearch Library which is presently operating out of the old building located at 464 E. 1st Avenue, Mesa Arizona.

As I learn more, I will be passing along any updates.


  1. Did you also hear that the last day the old building will be operational is September 14th? We were hoping it would stay open during the construction but it was not meant to be.
