The Coyote Branch Library in Buckeye, Arizona, is a vibrant showpiece for reading and the power of the imagination. In a heavily residential area in one of the nation’s fastest-growing cities, the new branch library became Buckeye’s second library for the community of 57,000. At approximately 17,000 s. f., the library is more than double the size of the original library.
The family-focused library features an Arizona wildlife theme that is brought to life with the main piece for the library – a large 3D tension fabric canopy shaped and printed like a children’s book. At 40’ wide by 30’ long, the book canopy is mounted above a central children’s reading area. The canopy is modeled on the book “There was a Coyote Who Swallowed a Flea,” a popular children’s title that speaks directly to the Arizona wildlife theme and which is written by Arizona-based author Jennifer Ward.
