About Harmon Library

Taking inspiration from the play of light and color in a kaleidoscope, Harmon Library shines throughout the day as sunlight ranges across the colored glass in​ numerous skylights and gunslot windows.  Providing a welcoming transition from the exterior, decking leads to a central service desk.

A multi-purpose meeting room seats 75.

Built in 1950, the original Harmon Library (located at 411 W. Yavapai) was Phoenix Public Library's first branch facility.  A ceramic mural from the original building has been relocated to a reading patio in the new facility.  Three banners that hang from the ceiling trusses depict the mural - each is a photographic representation of 1/3 of the original piece.​

The original Harmon Library has been replaced by a landscape installation designed by artist Stacy Levy, entitled "River of Shade."  The project was coordinated by City of Phoenix Parks & Recreation Department and the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture.
