Human chain moves 50,000 books for Vernal library

  • An estimated 300 volunteers turned out Saturday to help move 50,000 books from the old Uintah County Library into the new one. And they did it all by hand, forming a human chain that took book after book after book from the shelves in one building and put them on the shelves in the other. “In the next week we’ll move another almost 100,000 books,” said library director Sam Passey, who called the turnout for Saturday’s event “very exciting.” The old library was built in 1958 and underwent two expansions to bring it up to almost 9,000 square feet. But Passey said the building’s electrical system was maxed out and there was no more room to expand the library’s collection.
