  • The Earth is like a child that knows poems. Rainer Maria Rilke

    Earth Day, taking place Wednesday, April 22, is an annual event which recognizes environmental issues and promotes the protection of Earth and its natural resources. Help support a healthy environment. Through the month of April, exchange your plastic bags for a reusable City Library tote at the Main Library Browsing Desk. Using reusable bags reduces waste and fossil fuel consumption.

    Join The City Library for a panel discussion on life and art at the Topaz interment camp. More than 11,000 people of Japanese ancestry—most of whom were U.S. citizens or legal permanent resident aliens—were relocated to the Topaz internment camp near Delta, Utah during World War II. Many internees documented their lives at the camp through artwork created at an internee-run art school.
