I had the opportunity to check some books out from the public library (on a relatives account) but noticed that the building is posted "no weapons" at the entrance. Is this legal? I know that in Washington they cannot prevent you from bringing a legally carried weapon into the library and would assume it's the same in Arizona.
In 2006 we (AzCDL) got the law revised so that when they post thatJim Crow"we don't serve your kind here" (i.e. no weapons) sign, they must provide onsite storage that is immediately accessible on leaving. Over a year later, some municipalities and agencies are balking at the law, but many more are adding storage lockers. The smart ones are taking down the stupid sign because they're finding it expensive to provide storage. Hopefully you found storage lockers when you were there?
By the way, we also got a bill passed whereby Arizona recognizes all permits from all states. I don't know if AZ recognized your WA permit prior to that, but they do now (as long as you are not a resident of AZ).
