From Calaveras Enterprise

” Sally Tuttle, a guiding light of the Calaveras County library system and the proud founder of the Dirty Book Club, died Wednesday at her home in Mokelumne Hill. She was 86…Before the Tuttles began their nationwide legal odyssey, Sally had established a lifelong love of books and libraries, which she put on hold until their return to Calaveras County in 1967. Before leaving, Sally Tuttle helped start the Friends of the Mokelumne Hill Library in 1962 and became its first president.“In was a major goal of mine to build a new library,” she said in a 2013 Enterprise interview.Her goal did not waver for 26 years. Largely thanks to Tuttle’s leadership and determination, a sparkling new state-of-art library opened in San Andreas in 1993. It was a $2.8 million, 15,000-square-foot monument to one woman’s devotion to books, libraries and learning. ”
