One response to “1 – 2nd List

  1. Hi Jessica,
    Thanks so much for putting this list together! As the mom of a 1st grade son and the Community Relations Manager at Maria’s Bookshop, I love hearing about locals here in Durango creating great resources like this. We should talk about ways to partner up and support each other! At the very least, we can share your posts through our Twitter feed, link you to our Facebook page, etc. And I can show you how you can become a Maria’s Bookshop affiliate, so folks can buy books you recommend through their locally-owned indie bookstore. If you’d like to talk more, please let me know.
    Best, Libby
