Burton Barr Library Welcomes Summer

In addition to the largest collection of books and media materials in the Phoenix Public Library system, Burton Barr Central Library is also home to an art gallery, coffee shop, entrepreneurial resource center, college advising and assistance center and more. 

Last week, the library officially welcomed summer on June 20 for the Summer Solstice. Thanks to the work of architect Will Bruder, the library acts as a sundial on the Summer Solstice each year and during the days to follow. Over the span of approximately 15 minutes, visitors can witness light wash over the walls, cascading down from the west wall and climbing up the east, and the illumination of the tops of the “candlestick columns,” which glow blue with the illusion of flames.
