My relationship with libraries goes back to elementary school in rural New Mexico. Books became my mentors, my view to a wide world, knowledge, and entertainment.
Where ever I went I made sure my family had access to a library. The photo I have sent comes from the Duncan library in south eastern Arizona circa 1983 where I was a volunteer.
When I moved my family to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona our library was the Columbus library on 22nd. When I became a county employee El Pueblo library was my neighbor and I enjoyed many years there. Now Martha Cooper library is my newest library. I missed it during its recent renovation. Every library has a different flavor and I enjoy it all.
Thanks for being my friends and good neighbors.
Indeed, I LOVE my library!!
