    UPDATE: Generous donors have covered the cost of Malin's surgery and medical expenses!!!

    Malin - Animal Services Rescue

     

     

    Donations are still being accepted for future emercency vet services.

     

     

    This is Malin (English), meaning "warrior" or "strong, little warrior"

    This baby was thrown out of a car and has two broken back legs. She also has two rib fractures that will heal with time. She will need to have surgery on both back legs.

    This little one is only 2 months old. We would love to help her heal and then find her the best home where all she will know is love. This little lady has had a lot of trauma in short time here but she deserves a chance and love.

    The current main playground (Little Tikes Playground) at Fitts Park is temporarily closed to the public until equipment improvements and a new rubber ground surface has been installed. 

    We appreciate your patience and cooperation keeping out of the construction zone. The rubber surface requires warm weather to build, so with a little weather luck, the playground will open by Memorial Day!

    Good bye Smith, Hello Granite!


    more ▼ less ▲

    The County Library's Smith branch, located at 810 E 3300 S, will close permanently on March 26, 2022. We look forward to the grand opening of the new Granite branch, located at 3331 S 500 E in June of 2022.

    Why is the Smith branch closing now, instead of in June when the Granite branch opens?
    As the Granite branch nears completion, there is still a great deal of work to get all the books, resources, and services ready for the public. Once the Smith branch closes, the staff will be hard at work to pack up the collection at Smith and move some of it to Granite and other branches in the system. The Smith staff will be instrumental in moving the full collection into the new Granite branch and preparing the branch for opening day. This will take several weeks.

    Where should I return my checked out materials?
    Items checked out from the Smith branch can be returned to any County Library branch. You can find a complete list here.


    What should I do about my held items?
    Holds from Smith will be moved to the Millcreek branch, located at 2266 E Evergreen Ave (3435 S). Adjustments to your hold location can be made online. Once the Granite branch is open, you can adjust your holds to be available there.

    How can I find out more about the Granite branch?
    You can learn more about the Granite branch on the Building Updates page on our website.

    Will there be a new community garden coming to Fitts Park in 2022? The answer is YES.

    After months of community members stepping up to gather names of those wishing to create, organize, and volunteer, we are pleased to announce that Wasatch Community Gardens has accepted our application to become partners and to help facilitate this endeavor. Thanks to all of you!!

    Parks for Produce Program Manager, Giles Larsen at Wasatch Community Gardens shares, "I'm excited to announce that your garden application has been tentatively accepted. Very nice work! I'm impressed by the very quick turn around on collecting signatures, the diversity of organizations that SSL works with, and the degree to which the community appears excited about this project!"

    Moving foward, with hopes to have the garden planting-ready for tenants by May of 2022, we are now in the process of its organization and design. In addition, several upcoming volunteer projects will be announced starting in April.

    If you are interested in being part of the process, in building something beautiful, or to lease a garden plot, it's still very possible. All are welcome!
