Love Letter to My Library: Rosalia Pierre

We're grateful to Rosalia Pierre for taking the time to submit this Love Letter.

Why I love my library:

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.

Wherever I went I made sure my family had access to a library.

When I moved my family to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona our library was the Eckstrom-Columbus Library on 22nd Street. When I became a county employee, the El Pueblo Library on Irvington Road was my neighbor and I enjoyed many years there. Today, Martha Cooper Library is my newest library. I missed it during its recent renovation.

Every library has a different flavor and I enjoy them all.

Thanks for being my friends and good neighbors.

Indeed, I LOVE my library!!
