Yes, St. George is going to have a new library building!

Volunteers have organized to conduct a capital campaign to build a new library for the Town of St. George. We are laying the foundation for a successful campaign by soliciting library leadership and volunteers before we go out to the general community.

Although the campaign was launched in 2007, we soon realized that we needed to stop and reassess our direction. That turned out to be just the right decision. After a lot of internal and public discussion we are back on the campaign trail – well on our way to building a beautiful new library to serve the citizens of St. George. 

Built on the library’s tradition of volunteerism, A New Library for St. George: The Next 75 Years has enlisted more than 30 volunteers from across the St. George peninsula to get started.
