‘Oh the places you’ll go’ in March might include Hyrum’s library

HYRUM — When the new library opened up on Main Street in May of 2007, city officials had hopes of it becoming a major part of the city; and that is just what it has become.

“The library is a great place to get together and we’re all really proud of it,” said Michelle Allgood, a native of Hyrum. “Since the library was built, it really has become a major hub for activity in the town.”

The library cost nearly $4 million to build, a major investment for Hyrum. But in return, the city has gained a place where citizens of all ages can gather together. The library hosts many community events, and its bulletin boards and doors are always covered with posters of upcoming events and fundraisers in the community.

It’s an especially popular location for young children and their parents. Every month there is a special week of preschool story time for children ages 3-5 years old. This month, the story time is based around Doctor Seuss’s books and is called “Oh The Places We’ll Go.” Parents can sign their children up for story time at the library’s front desk. This month’s story time week is March 27-30.

Kandice Crockett has worked at the library for three years and loves the involvement she feels in the community by just doing her job. “The best thing about working here is that you get to interact with so many different people,” she said. “It’s great to be able to help people when they come in with questions or need help finding a book. The library is awesome and it’s really a good environment to be in.”

It’s a great place for kids, teens, and adults alike to come and relax, or study and do research. The library features a children’s theater, a kitchen that could easily be turned into a café or restaurant for the public, study rooms and a fireplace surrounded by large, comfortable chairs for reading.
