Library to celebrate its 100th year

The Uintah County Library turns a hundred years old in 2008. In honor our centennial we are having a ‘year of celebration.’ We hope that you will join in the celebration by participating in themed activities, book clubs, guest speakers, kids crafts, special story time, and more will be held throughout the year. We hope that you will join us for some unique activities that will enlighten, entertain, and enrich your lives!
As the story goes, a ladies club held a play in 1908 to which they sold tickets. The proceeds from the ticket sales were used to establish a public book collection which became eventually became the Uintah County Library. While those original books have long been gone, the community spirit that launched the library still thrives in Uintah County. Please join us in charting out the future of the library!
Over the years the library has changed, for the better—we hope! One new change that you’ll see this year is that Monday-Thursday we will open one hour earlier. This will make our new hours: Monday-Thursday 9:00 a.m.- 9:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday our hours will be 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m
