Sonoran Heritage: A Learning Library Program

Published by Pima County (AZ) Public Library

The Sonoran Heritage Collection contains resources and documents developed by the Tucson Public Library, in conjunction with local institutions and organizations, with the intent to educate the public about the history, culture, and peoples of the Sonoran Desert region of Arizona and Mexico. The materials in this collection were released in packets dedicated to specific topics, including "Clothes and Costumes," "Play," "Power," "Shelter," "Family," "Work," "Genius," and "Destiny." The topics of these packets were defined, examined, and expounded upon through articles, stories and exercises for the purpose of developing a new perspective on the history and values of the Sonoran Desert region. These learning packets were augmented by lectures and public events held in the various branches of the Tucson Public Library from January 1978 to December 1980.
