Almost 36 years to the day from the day it opened, the Roosevelt City Duchesne County library opened its doors to a brand new facility. Back in 1987, it was considered state-ofthe- art.
The new library is set to open the first week in Feb ruary, after weathering delays, as many businesses did coming out of COVID.
This new library will be worth the wait.
The new library boasts a cozy fireplace reading area, an expanded computer area, meeting rooms available to the public as well as community rooms for patrons to hold events.
There is no fee if the event is free to the public, if the user charges a fee, then the library will charge a user fee as well.
There is still a kids reading area with several local storytellers waiting to start sharing their craft with the kids.
Stephen Moon said the library will be able to offer courses to the public when the library opens, such as coding, and many others.
Works by local artists will grace the walls at the new library. A.D. Shaw’s “The Storyteller” went to the new library and will hang in the kids area.
