FSL 2021-22 Lecture Series

All lectures will be held at 4:00 pm at the DesertView Theater

Thursday, October 14, 2021

Speaker: Samantha Schwann

Topic:  A Photographic Project of Endangered Shark Species in the Sea of Cortez  


Samantha Schwann is an Oro Valley- based underwater photographer whose work concentrates on ecologically unique areas of the ocean, specifically those which act as important sanctuaries for sharks. These incredible locations are typically UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and are migratory routes for dolphins, Oceanic Manta Rays, turtles, dolphins and whales. Her presentation will contain photographs, video and behind-the-scenes stories about these incredible locations of marine life and how to protect our oceans. She aims to replace fear with fascination about the super heroes of the ocean: SHARKS.

Our Purpose

The Friends of SaddleBrooke Libraries (FSL) was established in 2000 to provide funding for the three SaddleBrooke Libraries located inside the SaddleBrooke and MountainView Clubhouses and the DesertView Performing Arts Center. FSL raises funds for new library materials and equipment through:

  • Membership donations
  • Community education events
  • Fundraising events and activities
  • Tax-exempt gifts

Our members support these efforts by volunteering, attending fundraising events, donating library materials, making monetary gifts and encouraging others to join FSL.

We encourage you to become an FSL member and support the SaddleBrooke Libraries.
