A Word from Cosmo
It's been fun to see people in the library on Tuesdays and Thursdays! Although the librarians play games with me and keep me rolling in fresh catnip, I was starting to miss our patrons. Oh, and thanks for all the fan mail, friends!
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.

Be Excellent to Each Other,
