Over 100 years ago, the second mayor of Price City had the pleasure of opening the Carnegie Library. The library then changed in 1958 to what is now known as the Price City Library. Mayor Joe Piccolo was in attendance reflecting on his joys of doing research each time Price City has improved.
The community gathered at the library on Monday to celebrate the highly anticipated basement annex. A long time coming, The Annex is a center for local children to enjoy. First, a ribbon cutting ceremony took place outside the library doors.
After the ceremony, attendees were welcomed inside to to hear opening remarks from Mayor Piccolo, who shared that the library was where he met his wife and Price’s first lady. Eric and Eli Snow then spoke shortly and welcomed Noleena Dennison, who gave her comments on the mural that she lovingly and painstakingly painted on a wall of The Annex.
The crowd was then welcomed to tour The Annex. Featuring a reading nook under the stairs, computers with colorful keyboards, a plethora of books, toys and more, The Annex has something for all children to enjoy.
The library staff would like to thank Eli Snow, Sisters and Elders, Scouts, the Library Board, Mayor Piccolo and the City Council, Bret Cammans, Seth Huntington, Steven Richardson, Fermin Gutierrez, Derek Richardson, City Departments, Library Staff, Patrons and all other supporters for the help in making The Annex a reality.
