Teacher thrilled with Centennial book

We met Pamela Gavina at the AzLA conference at South Mt Public Library. She told us about the excitement in her 6th grade class at Magnet Traditional School over receiving Arizona Recollections and Reflections book. It was supposed to go to the school library but she had it in her classroom for a few days. It became a focus of many students enjoying the photos and stories of Arizona Historymakers. When she told them it needs to go to the library, they asked, "How can we read it every day if it is not in the classroom?"

Our sponsors for this program have been very generous and we would like to be able to donate a copy of this book to every classroom. But our campaign is to donate it to every School and Public library in the state. We are making progress but still many more libraries to go . . .
