If you’re preparing your reading list for the upcoming “lazy days of summer” and find yourself at the Oro Valley Public Library, be sure to stop by and see our display. The Collections team has gathered some of the favorite items from the Celebrate Oro Valley exhibit and taken them on the road to the library. Thank you to Sue Chambasian for co-ordinating the library display theme and Twink Monrad for lending a helping hand.
Don’t forget to add “Claiming the Desert” by local author, Jim Williams, to your reading list. Next time you take a hike in Catalina Park, or walk around Steam Pump Ranch at the Farmer’s Market, it will give you a new perspective on our local history. Jim’s book can be bought at the Oro Valley Historical Society booth at Steam Pump Ranch on Saturdays from 8 to Noon for $15 or on Amazon. Jim has generously donated all proceeds to the OVHS. Thank you, Jim!
