Checkin' in with Cosmo
Although it's been nice to perfect the skill of power-napping, I'm excited to see some fresh faces in the library at last!
The librarians have been scurrying around all week with brooms and mops and measuring tapes. While I can't sweep or mop very well, I've been helping out by being extra sweet and friendly. That seems to make them happy. Hope to see you soon!
The health and safety of our patrons and staff is a top priority. The Library will continue to follow the direction, instruction, and guidance of the Southeast Utah Health Department, the Utah Department of Health, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, and the World Health Organization.
Please call us or email info@moablibrary.org with any questions. We are here to help.

Have a Safe and Happy July 4th,
