ATTENTION LIBRARY PATRONS
The annual gently used book sale will begin on December 1st – the same day that we also begin taking bids on our Silent Auction fund raiser. Both events are great ways to find many gifts/stocking stuffers. Most books are in new or almost new condition and they are priced from only $.50 to $2.00. You’ll find this sale inside the library, available during regular library hours until Dec. 13th.
Area merchants and small business owners generously donate items for our annual Silent Auction, such as gift certificates and retail items. Curious about what is available? Here is the current list of items collected so far :2014LibrarySilentAuctionforWeb. Both of these events help to keep your library even more well-stocked and up-to-date with new reading materials, equipment, and technology. An added bonus is that if you shop these sales you will be getting some great bargains along with unique and special gifts for family, friends and yourself!

The Kanab Library, in conjunction with the Utah State Library and libraries across the country are participating in a program entitled “EveryoneOn” a public service program designed to make it easier, more accessible and more understandable for every person to learn about and to use the resources available on the Internet. Another benefit is “to eliminate the digital divide by delivering affordable high-speed Internet, computers, education and training to low-income Americans.” If you go to “Connect”, fill out the short survey to see what is available. This is a free 3 year project that started on 3-21-13. Please visit the site at: www.everyoneon.org
Kanab City Library serves the rural community of Kanab in the beautiful red rock country of southern Utah. Including the city residents, the library serves over 6,000 residents of Kane County and citizens living on the Arizona Strip. Because Kanab is centrally located to many national parks and scenic areas the library also serves visitors during the tourist season. Kanab is located 4 miles from the Arizona border and 80 miles east of St. George, Utah.
