We are happy to announce!

We have received partial membership to

North Utah County Library Cooperative.

Beginning on October 1st, 2014 you can get a Lehi, American Fork, Pleasant Grove, Eagle Mountain and Highland library card for half of their annual non-resident fee. This will allow you to check out and borrow materials from these additional libraries.

 

Remember, ALL items must be checked out and returned to the same location. If books are returned to the wrong location, you will incur overdue fines.

We’re sorry but due to limited staffing and budgets in each location, you cannot attend programming or place books on hold in any of these locations.


We will be eligible for full membership once, we have a collection of 50,000 items or 2.5 items for every resident of Saratoga Springs.

 
Thanks to this grant, we've been able to add $10,000 worth of materials to the Young Adult, Spanish and Chinese collections.

Immersion Collection to Support Local Schools      $10,000
The specific areas of Spanish, Chinese, and young adult materials have been chosen to meet the needs of children attending either of the two language immersion schools or New Haven boarding school. As a result of these schools, the library has developed programs and collections in these languages.

This year 22 Utah libraries of all types will be able to expand their services thanks to over $300,000 in grants allocated through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), a federal agency which supports Utah libraries through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), and administers grant dollars through the Utah State Library Division. 

In addition, in order to further support these efforts of the Utah State Library to maximize the reach and scope of Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant funding, the Utah Department of Heritage & Arts has elected to implement the newspaper digitization projects proposed in the applications from the Springville Public Library and the Park City Library.

“Digitizing significant portions of the Springville Herald and Park Record newspaper back issues dovetails perfectly with our department’s ongoing efforts to make Utah’s newspapers available online,” said Julie Fisher, executive director of the Department of Heritage & Arts. “We look forward to working with these two wonderful libraries, and leveraging our digitization expertise and partnership with the Utah Digital Newspapers project.”

To date, the Utah Department of Heritage & Arts has digitized 405,456 pages of Utah newspapers from the collection of the Utah State Historical Society, all of which are now available online via the Utah Digital Newspapers portal. The projects proposed by the Springville Public Library and the Park City Library will be used as a demonstration project to explore how state resources can be utilized to digitize newspapers outside of the Historical Society’s collection.

 “LSTA funds are intended to help libraries develop their central roles as community builders and used to promote improvements in services to all types of libraries,” says State Librarian Donna Jones Morris. “This latest round of grants is to be divided among school, public and academic libraries to help support a wide array of programs from literacy to providing broad access to databases.”
Morris says applications submitted were reviewed by committees of librarians from across the state who had the tough task of prioritizing the grants, making recommendations and final decisions.  Morris says their efforts are appreciated. She also acknowledged the work of Dr. Stephen Matthews, USL Grants Coordinator.  

The 2014 LSTA Sub-Grant recipients include: ten grants for Collection projects totaling $98,778, three grants for Digitization projects totaling $56,054, and nine grants for Technology totaling $145,171 were awarded for a grand total of 22 grant awards totaling $300,003.  Eleven of the grant recipients are public libraries, six are school libraries and five are academic libraries. The grant award period begins August 1, 2014 and ends June 30, 2015.
