Ribbon cutting for Show Low library

Friday, 13 August 2010

The city of Show Low, Arizona, is buzzing about its new public library and council chambers, and is celebrating the opening with an open house, live radio broadcast, and ribbon cutting ceremony on August 17.

City manager Ed Muder said, “We’re happy to hear so many positive comments from our citizens and library patrons about this beautiful new facility. This is the first phase in our long-term plans for a civic center that will serve our citizens for many years to come.”

The library, which opened to the public earlier this month, offers patrons and staff a 50% increase in space. Its form reflects the tradition of lodge construction in the White Mountains with a 150-foot clerestory window that brings daylight deep into the library’s main hall.

The library is the first of two major projects and streetscape improvements that are defining a pedestrian-oriented downtown for Show Low. Located in the heart of Arizona’s White Mountains, the city is the commercial and tourism hub of Navajo County.
