The Weber County Library System offers free Notary Public Services for the benefit of our patrons. Here are some commonly asked questions that will help your notary process go smoothly.

Play is much more than just fun and games, it's the work of children. It gives them the opportunity to expand their knowledge and build skills, further their understanding of themselves and their environment, satisfy their need for aesthetic experiences, and develop pride in their heritage and appreciation of other cultures. It stands to reason that if play is the work of children, then toys are the tools of their trade.

Because public libraries are locally funded, those living outside a particular political subdivision have typically had to purchase cards to gain borrowing privileges from neighboring libraries, but recently signed interlocal service agreements among six Northern Utah cities and counties have changed all that and opened the doors to better service.

Cooperative Borrowing Policy

Interlibrary loan service is essential to the vitality of libraries of all types and sizes as a means of greatly expanding the range of materials available to users. Lending between libraries is in the public interest and should be encouraged.

The Weber County Library Development Fund is a tax exempt, not-for-profit organization that provides funding for capital projects, outreach services, and specialized library materials and equipment. The fund accepts donations of cash, stock, and personal property in support of its mission.

A Friends of the Library group was first organized in Ogden during 1961 to promote improved library service for Ogden City and the surrounding County. Their first major project was to develop a campaign that eventually lead to the construction of the present Main Library.

Weber Reads fosters community-wide discussion by providing opportunities for people to read, reflect, and engage in meaningful dialogue built around the writings of selected authors who help illuminate experiences and beliefs that transcend group values to unite us as human beings.

Emily Dickinson, a beloved author for people of all ages, is the focus of the 2012-13 Weber Reads program. Her poems and letters are read in elementary and secondary schools and studied in college classrooms. Because of a poem read a child, she is often the only poet a person knows.

Library policies are set forth by the Library's Board of Trustees. The Weber County Library Board of Trustees is charged through County Ordinance with responsibility for public library services. Members of the Board of Trustees are responsible for planning, establishing policy, authorizing hiring of staff, preparing the budget, authorizing expenditures, and monitoring the overall operation of the Library System.
