The Kino Library was officially founded in 1978. Efforts were immediately begun to build an outstanding theological collection to meet the needs of Catholic adults in the Phoenix area.

Since its beginning the library has expanded to provide theological and biblical resources for adults of many faiths in the southwest. Today the library has grown to over 30,000 English and Spanish resources.
