Take in Some Culture

Immediately adjacent to this ZIP, is Agave Library, part of the Phoenix Public Library system.

Agave Library is a pavilion of masonry, metal and glass set in natural desert landscaping. A tower contains the children’s story room and marks the location from Pinnacle Peak Road. The polished concrete floors, inlaid area rugs, colorfully upholstered furniture and sky-lit exposed wood truss ceiling suggest a traditional Arizona “great” room.

Public Art found in the library includes “Parabiosis VII” by sculptor Kendall Buster, which was commissioned by the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture.
