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
