Welcome to Rose Island

by Vicky on June 28, 2011

The world travel theme of this year’s Summer Reading Program has prompted the interesting outcome that each of  the branches of the ABC Libraries here in Albuquerque has morphed into a separate country!

And, by obtaining a passport, library patrons can visit them all!

No one promised me a rose garden, but somehow I landed at Rose Island, the most beautiful of all.

I designed our flag, which incorporates the flag signal for the letter H (for the Tony Hillerman Library), a compass rose design from a 1492 Portuguese nautical chart, and a white rose, symbol of wisdom.

Here are some photos I took around the grounds, in the Albuquerque Rose Garden.

And what is so rare as a day in June?

Then, if ever, come perfect days…
