The Barron Public Library located at the primary school, was able to procure new books last week. Representatives of the library attended the annual book fair held at the Plazuela Marchada and purchased about $200 worth of books for the library. Additionally, the furniture has been delivered and they expect to open the library to the public within a few weeks. If you have ideas as to how to procure books in Spanish at all reading levels, please contact Friends of Barron at FriendsofBarron@aol.com.
Dale Lyster cuts the ribbon to the brand new elementary school library while school principal Hilario Espinoza Ortiz looks on. Dale was instrumental in raising the money to rennovate the empty classrom and turn it into a proper lending library for the Barron community. Efforts continue to locate more books.
