One of the places we visited in St. George was the new library. It is absolutely beautiful. The plan was based on the old three story Dixie College building in the center of town made of red sandstone.
Many a local are not thrilled that city fathers tore down a “perfectly good” 40 year old library to build the new one, and they do have one point, the stairs are a pain.
They had an active reading program with a lot of children coming and going, but they could certainly have benefited from my niece’s flat out genius with promoting reading.
However, the children’s library is spectacular. My favorite part is the fanciful ceiling paintings. I took a few photos to share because I knew all the book worms in my family, particularly the Ninja Librarian, would be charmed by them.
I lothe our local library and I had a really large rant spelled out in my head. But the natives are getting restless, they want me to go pick up some movies and just maybe the new Harry Potter PS2 game. So I'll keep this particular crankiness to myself for the time being.
