RIO RANCHO, N.M. — Jo Payne and her husband Ted Pey love books. So much so that the North Valley couple visits a library at least once a week.
The pair was visiting the North Valley branch Thursday afternoon for the first time since it re-opened on Tuesday after smoke and fire damage forced its closure in July. They live near the Second Street library but were forced to go to other branches while it was closed.
“We were sad when it closed,” Pey said. “We are definitely book lovers.”
