Even though the branches of the The County Library are not open for in-person visits, they are still providing all sorts of virtual services to Granite students and community members, including their summer reading challenge!
See all the details of their 2020 reading challenge on their summer reading web page, including prizes, weekly ideas and activities, and recommended book lists in categories for Babies/Toddlers, Children, Teens, and Adults.
While you’re on their new website click around to see their upcoming online events and programs, explore their digital resources and downloadables, place a hold on one of their recommended items for curbside pickup, or apply for a library card if you don’t already have one. Students and families living in Granite School District boundaries are all eligible for free library cards. Faculty of Granite schools are also eligible for free library cards even if they live outside of Salt Lake County. (You may need to show your employee badge at a branch once they open back up.)
As a bonus, with a County library card you can access their large and growing collection of ebooks and audiobooks for kids and teens right in Sora, and search both the Granite and County collections at the same time.
If you have questions about Salt Lake County Library services during closure you can call them at 801-943-4636.
