Kanab in Kane County, Utah — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Utah Historic Site
Although the Kanab Library was founded in 1915, it was not at first housed in a permanent structure but was rather moved around to various temporary accommodations. In 1938, an $8,000 bond election was approved to build a permanent library, and plans drawn by the architect Carson F. Wells were acquired from the city of Salina, which had just constructed a library, The Kanab Library is basically identical to the Salina building and combines features of both the Prairie School and Art Deco styles. Wells's design combines a symmetrical facade with abstract geometrical embellishments which tones down the rigidly formal appearance of the building.
