The Centennial Year is 2015  and we are planning many fun and informative activities, so please check back for more information as 2014 progresses. Please email the library: kancitlib@xpressweb.com

All Together Now… READ!!

      EliasBooksThe community read came to its conclusion with a visit from the author on Saturday, March 29 at the library. Gerald Elias, current member of the Boston Symphony, former assistant concertmaster of the Utah Symphony, and author of 4 mystery novels, wowed the crowd with his music. He explained how the stories that inspired the original music by well-known composers were what he used as his inspiration for his novels. Each novel features a specific piece of music. We all left his presentation motivated to listen to more music and eager to read his books. The library has all Gerald Elias’ novels available for checkout; Devil’s Trill, Danse Macabre, Death and Transfigurationand Death and the Maiden. Thanks to the Utah Humanities Council for co-sponsoring with the library to make this presentation possible.

State Library Online Book Club


Everyone On!

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.
