The Mesa FamilySearch Library closes during the Expo.  To utilize the library you will need to visit Mesa  a day earlier than the Expo.  The good news is the genealogy collection at the  Law and Research Library at the Arizona Capitol will be open so if you want to research before the Expo begins you can spend the morning there.  More information about the research library can be found here:  Law and Research Library.
