Conceptually, borrowing from the symbiotic relationship between a young Saguaro and a nurse tree, the building's large roof creates a nurturing microclimate for growth, providing shelter and protection from the weather. Designed to fit into the desert site with a minimum of disturbance, the facility has been LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified by the United States Green Building Council.
Desert Broom Library features a First Five Years/Los Primeros Cinco Años interactive learning space for families with young children, Teen Corner - a special "teen only" area, WiFi and Internet-accessible public computers. The library's collection of newspapers and magazines, books, DVDs and CDs is designed to meet community members' educational and recreational needs. A multi-purpose room for community meetings as well as library programs seats 50.
