Sluggo in the library

[Nancy, February 26, 2020.]

Bookstores too, Sluggo. See Jack Cella: “If you’re in a decent bookstore, you can look at any shelf and realize how little you know.”

Here’s all of today’s Nancy.

I was reading this book yesterday about the growth of Bisbee, a copper mining town in southeastern Arizona where my grandmother grew up, and it says, "Legends tell that mining officials were horrified when they entered Bisbee and discovered the remains of a man swinging from a tree after a lynching at the base of Castle Rock. Feeling that only education could tame such a community, the development of a book-borrowing program began. . . . An official library opened in 1887 . . . . In 1892, the second library was built. . . The third and present Bisbee library opened in 1907." (Annie Graeme Larkin, Douglas L. Graeme, and Richard W. Graeme IV, Early Bisbee, Charleston, S.C.: Arcadia, 2015, pp. 21-2) This is an interesting comment on the positive effects of education and libraries.

That’s quite an origin story. Thanks for sharing it here, George.
