Yuma, Arizona - On February 24th, 2021, the Heritage Library will turn 100 years old, and the Yuma County Library District will celebrate 100 years of public library service! Over a century, the Library District has grown from a modest, one-room Carnegie Library to include a Main Library and seven branches.
In commemoration, the Library District is pleased to present a Centennial webpage, https://www.yumalibrary.org/100years. The webpage includes a narrative history, timeline, and historic photos for a look back through the decades.
“Although the current pandemic prevents us from gathering in person, we want to engage our community to honor our past and celebrate our future,” said Library Director Lisa Mendez. “We’re offering virtual programs and displays, and we hope people will interact and share their library memories with us. One hundred years of public library service would not have been possible without the continual support of Yuma County residents.”
