“My 4 year old and I love to visit the library. This is where he said his first word while I was reading a book to him. When I offer to let him pick a treat for good behavior, he always chooses to visit “Booker Bear” and pick out a new book to read.”

“The library offers so much more than just books! We love to visit to learn about new technologies and participate in the learning workshops.”

“After 22 years on the Board of Directors, I look back at all the wonderful things we were able to do for the library. Things that would not have been possible without generous donors’ support of the Yuma Library Foundation.”
