It’s magic!

The COVID-19 pandemic has put libraries nationwide in uncharted territory. We miss our customers, we miss interacting with them, and we miss hosting programs that educate and inspire.

We've created this blog series, Stories from Before, chronicling the stories of customers who ♥ all the Library offers, be it Storytime or Summer Reading, Books By Mail, English Language Classes, and much more. We hope these uplifting stories can help us all get through these challenging times and think about a brighter future.

Assisted by members of the audience, Magician Cody Landstrom amazed and entertained kids of all ages at the Santa Rosa Recreation Center in June 2019. The performance was sponsored by the Santa Rosa branch of the Pima County Public Library.

"It's still magic even if you don't know how it's done." - Terry Pratchett
