River Road Library

The library I visit most often is nestled into River Center, a shopping center at River Road and Craycroft Road. Dusenberry-River isn't the largest branch of Pima County Library, but it's close to home and I like the architecture. Palm trees and a meandering man-made stream make this shopping center feel like an oasis in the desert.

When I first started visiting River Center 15 years ago, besides the library, I would stop into the wild bird shop and the grocery store. Those stores closed many years ago, and there has been a constant turnover of merchants in the little shops.












The center has recently added some new facades and an attractive desert color scheme of purple, green, terra cotta and yellow. Seems like it would be the perfect location for a farmer's market offering locally grown produce.

The colours are lovely, but it certainly looks kind of hot and dry.

i love the architecture and the palms right at the center of the mall Diane, and of course, the very blue sky which the desert seem to always have.

In a way, it's too bad about the wild bird shop and the grocery store. I like the new colors, however.
