More than a dozen longtime Folsom residents turned out Friday night to visit the unveiling of the newly-renovated old library building behind the Giddy Up Coffee Shop. They shared memories of "Aunt Decie" Pittman's Library and how it opened up the world of reading for so many young people.
Here are several pictures of the get together, during which there were plenty of trips down memory lane, even to recalling the specific books they checked out on the weekly visits from the school children.

They remembered walking to the old library from the Folsom Elementary School to look over the books and check out their favorites. For a while the little library was only open on Friday afternoons, then it began opening on Mondays also, and finally it was open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
