Remembering Marilyn Ludwig

We are sad to announce that our dear friend and long time board member, Marilyn Ludwig, passed away on July 29th. Information about her obituary and planned memorial services will be posted as they become available. We have learned she will be honored at the University of Arizona, College of Education, where she was a volunteer. This will be on Nov. 3rd, 2023, during Homecoming.

We will always remember Marilyn’s years of service with Libraries, Ltd. Each year, she called all the institutions for their magazine orders; she brought in new institutions in need of books; and she was always ready to deliver book donations to our far-flung Southern Arizona towns. Her upbeat, cheery personality was always such a pleasure and a joy. Her thoughtful comments and caring manner will be sorely missed.

Marilyn (center), along with Marsie Habib, delivers books to the Bisbee Boys’ and Girls’ Club during the summer of 2017.
