Palo Verde Library is a new library in an older area of Phoenix. It is in the same complex as a leisure centre. The library was packed with people the afternoon I visited it. I did not take photographs in part of the library as there was no way I could do this without being totally intrusive. It was great to see the library so well used. It is another really lovely library in Phoenix.
This photograph shows the drive by returns area and window which you can use to talk to library staff, without leaving your car. It is a lovely colour.
A three step reading program was being promoted. This was a Phoenix wide program to teach children to read and was targeting parents of small children.
This shows the sky lights in the library - it was lit this way, and the light levels were impressive. I had not realised they were skylights as they look like lights. This is an interesting design feature. The flying book sculpture is at the entrance to the children's collection and service area.
This was a lovely library and my photographs do not do it justice. You can look at the slideshow below, or follow this link to read about the photographs.
