The Casa Verdugo Library has been sacked. When the library reopened after being remodeled, the majority of the books were gone. The wonderful book collection compiled over a period of 27 years by librarian Mary Alice Wollam is gone. Now only a small wall of books make up the library.

Our lovely library has been turned into a cavernous study hall. This is very sad for book-lovers who like to peruse the books and choose different ones of interest. At a time when resources are not there for libraries, why are the books already in a good collection being discarded?
