Here are some great program ideas from the Garland Public Library and from Dani in particular. Each of these events would work at just about any public library in Utah. Great job Garland Public Library for having fun with your teens and kids. HAVING FUN IS ESSENTIAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One of my favorites is the PIMP MY CART activity. Check it out and let the kids decorate your drab gray carts.
We just got a huge contribution of Story Time plans from Jess, a Library Assistant at the Park City Library.

Provo City Library: world’s best booklists
The best booklists or reading lists that I have found so far in the state of Utah are from Provo City Library at Academy Square. They can be found here: Provo City Library Booklists. They have created separate kids, teen, and adult sections and each is seemingly more impressive than the last. I am captivated by the thoroughness of the Provo City Library staff and administration. They have a beautiful website in general and an enviable library.
If you are updating booklists at your library this is a great example. If you are creating booklists for the first time this is a great place to start; no need to reinvent the wheel, but make sure you give Provo some credit on your website and send the administration at Provo City Library a thank you.
