Springville Library Open House

Springville Library Open House

I went to the Springville Public library open house last Friday night. Pam Vaughn, the

Springville Library Open House

Library Director, spoke, as did the mayor. There was a live band, the highlight of the evening for me. People were able to mingle, tour the new building, and celebrate the day. There is a stream running on one side of the property and from upstairs, one can look down and see the stream and the trees.  Some of the highlights of the building:

  • The entry is breathtaking
  • Lots of vibrant colors throughout
  • Computer area with large screens
  • Colorful children’s area with huge mobiles overhead
  • Comfortable space for storytime/ events
  • Teen area with lots of books and resources, right by the computer area
  • Huge reception area upstairs, with room to grow for the library
  • Very comfortable and cool staff area

My biggest takeaway: This is a beautiful library that will be an important community asset for many years to come. It shows that Springville City is committed to an informed, educated citizenry.
