 Burton Barr Central Library Celebrates Summer Solstice

Burton Barr Central Library, 1221 N. Central Ave., will celebrate the summer solstice Thursday, June 21, the first day of summer and the longest day of the year.

The free celebration begins at 11:30 a.m. with Irish and Scottish music performed by Rich Bailey followed by a noon talk by architect Will Bruder, who designed the library.

The event takes place in the Great Reading Room on the fifth floor, which was designed with the summer solstice in mind. On the first day of summer the sun is at its highest path through the sky and the day is the longest.

As the solstice unfolds, light and shadows will move across the walls on the fifth floor through the skylights, and sunlight will illuminate the room’s tapered columns.
