Utah Archives Month: 2019

It’s that time of year again! October is nationally recognized as Archives Month, drawing attention to the importance of archives across the United States. Utah’s theme this year is “Education in Utah” and there will be special events held by archives, including tours, exhibits, and conferences.

In a series of entries on this blog throughout October, we will be highlighting a collection received from the Salt Lake County Library System. These records are being digitized and will soon be browsable on our website.

The Salt Lake County Library System has documented their history through compiling scrapbooks and photographs since 1939. The archives has been lucky enough to have a retired librarian/branch manager volunteer her time to digitize this collection, which includes the years of 1939 through approximately 2004. Please stay tuned!

    Hi. I grew up patronizing the Millcreek branch library on Evergreen Avenue. It was designed, along with the fire station next door, by architect M.E. “Pat” Harris. He designed many buildings of my youth that others may remember, such as the Skaggs store in the Olympus Hills Shopping Mall at the top of 3900 S. and Wasatch Boulevard (the store with the giant parabolic shape). Most of these have been demolished. Anyway, i would love to see a post of the Millcreek library, especially the interior, if they are included in the SL County Library Archives. It was a little mid-century architectural gem, although I didn’t appreciate it at the time. Many thanks to the retired librarian who is donating time to scan the photos!

    I live away from Utah now but grew up there and still cherish my growing up and school years. I look forward to news and highlights from the collection.
