Books donated to Dysart School District

When the Dysart School District requested 17 of our Arizona Recollections and Reflections, League board member Margaret Truman Baker jumped at the chance to take the books to them.  Margaret’s parents bought a citrus grove in the Dysart School District in 1946 (family still lives there), and Margaret and her eleven siblings all graduated from Dysart Schools.  Her father, and then she, served a combined total of 25 years on the district’s governing board.  Margaret tells us she was the first woman and the youngest person ever elected to the board, at 30 years old—so she is “historic” there.

The librarians were most appreciative of the donation.
