Effective February 28, 2022, City of Phoenix lifted the face mask requirement for those visiting and/or attending programs within City of Phoenix facilities and Phoenix Public Library locations. City of Phoenix follows CDC Guidelines for reducing COVID risk. Should the risk level in Maricopa County increase to a high category, masking requirements will be reinstated. Attendance at in-person programs continues to be reduced to accommodate physical distancing. Thank you for understanding.

In Conversation with Author Jan Cleere - Online Online

Join us for a conversation with author and historian Jan Cleere for a discussion of her book, Never Don't Pay Attention: The Life of Rodeo Photographer Louise L. Serpa. Anyone who has ever stared down an angry bull coming full throttle across an arena will understand why rodeo photographer Louise Serpa often uttered the adage “Never Don’t Pay Attention." Born into New York society, Louise ended up out west with her nose buried in the dirt and her eye glued to a camera, becoming the first woman to venture inside the arena & shoot some of the most amazing photographs of rodeo action. The dust & dirt of the rodeo arena became Louise’s lifeblood for almost 50 years. Her story shows the courage and resolute of a woman determined to decide her own fate at a time when women were expected to marry, raise a family and know their place in society.
