​About Agave Library

Agave Library is a pavilion of masonry, metal and glass set in natural desert landscaping. A tower contains the children's story room and marks the location from Pinnacle Peak Road. The polished concrete floors, inlaid area rugs, colorfully upholstered furniture and sky-lit exposed wood truss ceiling suggest a traditional Arizona "great" room. 

A community meeting room seats 65.
