ATTENTION LIBRARY PATRONS
Art Exhibit at the Library!
We now have a space at the library for aspiring artists to hang their work. There is a mixed media show on display right now, but other artistis are welcome to talk with our library director, Dicki Robinson, about using the space in the future. You will find the work in the hall just before the multipurpose room – please take a look. For now, here are 2 images to give you an idea of what you will see when you visit!
Our Book Sale Was a Great Success!
For your next opportunity to purchase gently used books, please visit our booth at the “Western Legends Roundup”. The booth will be open starting on Thursday, August 21st and will close at the end of the day on August 23rd. We will have a great selection of western-themed books along with our wide variety of other titles that offer something for everyone. Remember, all money raised will be used to make the Kanab Library even better!
On Wednesday mornings at 10:00 am, the Kanab City Library held the popular Storytime for children from five to eight years of age. This year, in addition to stories, Dicki Robinson, our library’s director, included opportunities for story telling and fun activities to enhance the stories like crafts and music. Here you can see the entertainment that was provided by Susan Honey on our last meeting. Thank you, Susan!

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.
