Alamogordo Public Library

     We have been trying desperately for YEARS to raise funds for a new library.  Alas, to no avail.  No one seems to want to support it.  I guess reading is not popular.  It is so sad.  I LOVE the library.  I remember getting to go on Saturdays and check out 6 books each week.  I still love to read and I still frequent the library.  This wall is tiles that a third grade class made back in the 1960's depecting favorite scenes from books they had read.  Many of the small artists are still local and are now, well, not third graders any longer.

I adore this wall and wonder how many of current grade school children would know these stories?
