The Sun and the Moon by Dale Chihuly at the Foothills LibraryThe Foothills Library, located on 57th Avenue a quarter mile north of Union Hills Drive, was built in 1999. It matches the architectural style of the nearby Midwestern University, whose instructors regularly give talks on medical and health topics at the library.  Suspended in the lobby, Dale Chihuly's blown glass chandelier, The Sun and the Moon, consists of over 1,000 individually hand-blown pieces of glass.

With 33,000 square feet of space, this library has something for everyone. Beyond our extensive collection of books, audiobooks, DVDs, Blu-Rays, music CDs, video games, Culture Passes, magazines, Wi-Fi hotspots, Backpacks/Kits, Launchpads, and more that you would expect in a library, the Foothills Library has special highlighted areas. 

Our Youth Department has early literacy and tablet exploration areas featuring the Hi House kitchen, blocks, a train table, puzzles, Lego Duplo tables, and tablets preloaded with age-appropriate apps. Our Adult Department has group study rooms, quiet zone study carrels, community puzzles, and charging stations. Our teens have a comfortable place of their own to study, socialize, and charge their electronics in our Level Up Teen area. 

Signature events include two large book sales in addition to our regular ongoing book sales. The Spectacular Spring Book Sale and the Fabulous Fall Book Sale always feature a great assortment of books, DVDs, and CDs for all ages in the Roadrunner Room, plus a Buck-a-Bag sale in the Hummingbird Room. Both sales will be listed in the library's Calendar of Events.
