Event Details

Phoenix Public Library celebrates the first day of summer and the longest day of the year Saturday, June 21 at Burton Barr Central Library.

The free celebration begins at 11:30 a.m. in the Great Reading Room on the library’s fifth floor with live music from the Pete Pancrazi Jazz Trio. At approximately 12:15 p.m., architect Will Bruder will talk about the unique building features that create a visual effect of light and shadow across the walls. At the exact moment of solar noon, sunlight illuminates the room’s tapered columns through the skylights located immediately above them. The music continues with Pancrazi performing until 1:00 p.m.

The Summer Solstice Celebration is sponsored by the Phoenix Public Library Foundation
