Event Photos

Los Niños del Valle Preschool in Green Valley received funding from Libraries, Ltd. for two outdoor “book nooks” in the toddler and preschool programs. These enable children to observe nature, read a book, and share stories with one another. Volunteers from University of Arizona Master Gardeners are helping the children with gardening activities, such as planting seeds, transplanting tiny sprouts, watering, caring for worm bins, and harvesting vegetables to eat. Our “book nooks” provide the words, pictures, and stories to supplement the hands-on activities in the garden beds.


Libraries, Ltd. Tucson group recently contributed $1000 to “Story University,” a project of Make Way for Books. This provides online literacy activities and high-quality books for children in southern Arizona to build their own home libraries. Director Natalia Hoffman sent us the photos below and the following letter:
We are so grateful to Libraries, Ltd. for supporting our work at this time. We look forward to sharing our impact with a complete report at the end of the program year. In the meantime, please see these attached photos that show how we are reaching children and families through our bilingual online story time. We are so grateful that we can continue to share the joy of books and stories with our community!

Libraries, Ltd. recently delivered over 500 books to the Tohono O’odham Nation Education Department for their 2020 Love of Reading Celebrations. These books for children, teens, and adults were given away at several different events between Mar. 12 and 16.
That’s it for now! Thanks!
