Know Blue This color blue is often associated with trust, honesty and loyalty. It is a serious, steadfast color that signifies reliability, responsibility and security. Blue is also used to describe an amazing cheese, two distinctly American types of music, one of Pablo Picasso’s most prolific creative periods and one of the most underappreciated mountain ranges in Oregon. Get in touch will all things blue this February during Know Blue at all Deschutes Public Libraries.
