About Cesar Chavez Regional Branch
The Cesar Chavez Regional Branch will be the newest addition to the Phoenix Public Library System, following the opening of the Desert Broom
branch facility in northeast Phoenix. The official groundbreaking
took place August 5, 2004.
Location: West of 35th Avenue on Baseline Road at the northwest entrance to Cesar Chavez Park.
Council District: Located in City Council District 7.
Construction Start Date: Summer 2004
Features: Children’s story room, community meeting room, Teen Center, Internet access, computer training lab, newspapers and magazines, books, DVDs and CDs.
Architectural Highlights: The building is inspired by both its functional requirements and its special park setting near a lake with views of South Mountain. The floor plan, narrowing at its center like an hourglass, allows one to find the central service desk easily. The curves are a direct response to the powerful geometry of the nearby lake. The wing-like roof is a reminder of the historical importance of the flowering fields in Laveen.
In response to climate, the west side of the library is protected against the harsh afternoon sun. Both the north and south walls of the building are constructed of glass, rising in counterpoint to the building’s low profile. These welcoming window walls bring reflected natural light into the space, but do not allow direct sun to enter.
