Pictured above is the amazingly beautiful Desert Broom Branch of the Phoenix Public Library system. It will be the focus of some new blog posts in the upcoming weeks as I explore what makes this branch tick in terms of technology, programming and patron services in the evolving world of 21st. century libraries.
Built in 2005, this branch won awards for both environmental excellence and innovation in sustainable design.
So its pretty, but does that matter more than what's on the inside?
I'm determined to find out!
