The Mission Valley Library is one of the most interesting and beautiful libraries in town. The building was designed by Wheeler Wimer Blackman & Associates, and features an interior art piece by Joyce Cutler-Shaw titled "Sycamore Leaf Canopy," consisting of eight columns topped by cut metal sycamore leaves. It is both dramatic, refreshing and gives you the feeling of being in an outdoor space. The exterior of the library has what I believe is circular patterned brushed aluminum walls. It's super shiny and reflects the surrounding scenery.
