Loco Gringos organize Labor Day fundraiser

Please note: The library will be closed Tuesday, Sept. 16th for Mexican Independence Day and will reopen on the 17th.

Special THANKS to library friends and loco gringos, Tom & Maggie Cochran, for organizing the Loco Gringo Labor Day party at Lol-Ha. This is the second year that Tom & Maggie have put this party together and they hope to make it an annual event.

We are so grateful for the energy and enthusiasm that our many friends around the globe bring to keep our little library running.
