In July of 2017, there was a massive rainstorm in Salt Lake City. Through a series of unfortunate events, the Sprague Branch located in Sugar House flooded during this storm. Librarians came to the branch only to discover five and a half feet of water in the downstairs part of the building.

Over the next four years, Sprague has gone through the process of completely remodeling the entire building. I am happy to announce that May 3rd, Sprague will be open to the public again!
This also means that there is a brand spanking new teen space! The space was designed to be a fun hangout spot teens can come to do homework, read, participate in programs or just hang out and relax.
All of the furniture is on wheels and the table in the center has extra outlets and usb ports for all of your electronic needs.
Other exciting features include a variety of board games, a zine making kit, and a bin full of homework tools and school supplies that are available for any teen to use!
I am looking forward to all of the fun programs and events that will take place in this teen room in the years to come! If you have any suggestions for what you would like me to stock in the teen space, ideas for programs you would like to see, etc. please let me, Stephanie H. (the Teen Librarian at Sprague) know. See you soon!
