The Salazar-Ajo Branch Library was the second public library in all of Pima County. It opened in 1946 and serves the communities of Ajo, Why, Lukeville, and communities on the Tohono O'odham Nation. It is named after Lillie C. Salazar, who worked at the branch from 1985 to 1997. She was the branch manager when she died at the age of 59. Although she was born in Jerome, she spent much of her life in Ajo and was known by many as "Lillie from the library." The current location opened in 1996 with 5,000 square feet in two rooms. The collection has 20,000 items including books, CDs, DVDs, videos, talking books, magazines, newspapers, and Spanish-language materials. It serves as a location for community organizations, a homework help center for school children and general meeting place for community residents. About Ajo, Arizona Ajo was established as an unincorporated mining community in the 1800s. Ajo is designated by Pima County as a colonia. After Phelps Dodge Mining Corporation closed its mining operations in the area, Ajo became a retirement community and a gateway to travel in Mexico. The school, K-12, serves a large area including Ajo, Why, Lukeville and the town of Sonoyta in Mexico.
