Library Views


As promised, here is the view from the top floor of the library looking north over the parking lot.  We are looking toward the mid-town business district with it's high-rise buildings.  Now you can see those solar panels over the parking structures.


Walking toward the south of the building I pass one of the reading rooms with the stacks off to the side.


Looking toward the south, we see right into downtown Phoenix with all of it's tall buildings.  On this side of the building are the louvres I mentioned yesterday so I had to shoot between them to get the shot.  That's what you see sort of framing this shot.

It would be worth visiting this library for the views alone! Inspiring!

Great views, and beautiful blue skies! I'm glad Phoenix has invested (clearly) in its libraries.

Christine is right !

I'm not sure about that reading room...seems so sterile and cold. But the building is rather fantastic.

There are some good views of the city from in there.

It is so modern! I really love the idea of those solar collectors - absorbing the sun & shading cars at the same time!

I spent many a year down there at 1101 N. Central, KTAR/KPNX.

Excellent views from the library Sharon.. it's always good to see solar panels being used, harvesting power from the sun is the best idea ever!
