Creating a Cultural Hub For Rural Utah

With NEH support, the Brigham City Library has been bringing public humanities programming to its region since 1991. The library has hosted exhibitions and accompanying events focused on Lewis and Clark, Abraham Lincoln, Alexander Hamilton, John Steinbeck, the Civil Rights Movement, and, most recently, a memorial exhibition on the history of World War I. People from the surrounding area travel as far as 90 miles each way to see the exhibits and take part in accompanying public programs like expert lectures and book discussions. The success of these events has enabled the library to build a regular programming budget, which supports a variety of community initiatives. In addition to NEH-funded programs, the library is now able to host parent and child reading groups, writing workshops, and LEGO play nights and STEM activities for children.
