Sunday afternoon, the Linda Duran Public Library was opened with a ribbon cutting. Friends Susan, Sharon and I attended this special event. Priceville is a small but growing community and it is great to see so many services coming our way. Our mayor, Melvin Duran, officiated over the ribbon cutting and he told the story of how our library came to be. The town of Priceville had been given a house in a residential area near the center of town. The city council was unsure of what to do with this property until the mayor's wife, Linda, came up with a plan. She told her husband that if our community was to grow, we must have a library. For years the library lived happily in this small house but with the growth of the town, a new location was needed. And on Sunday, our new facility that is HUGE was opened to the public. What a difference! Thanks to the mayor and city council of Priceville for being so progress minded!
Many came out to see the mayor open the library named for his late wife, Linda. Our new library is very spacious and offers a computer room, meeting room and a gently used bookstore room that will be a means of raising money to purchase new books for the Linda Duran Public Library.
As we entered the library to sign the guest book, we were reminded of the lady who started it all. Her legacy will live on in Priceville.
True words! Every community needs a library to encourage dreams!
