In addition, a treasure trove of information awaits you at the Morgan County Library!  One of the many services available through the library is Pioneer: Utah’s Online Library.

What is Pioneer: Utah’s Online Library? 

“Pioneer is a virtual library created by the Utah State Library Division in cooperation with Utah’s public libraries. It is one component of the statewide Pioneer project, which serves Utah’s public schools and academic institutions, as well as patrons of public libraries.

“The Pioneer databases include journal articles, magazines, newspapers, pictures, biographies, and other research aides that are unavailable on the “free” internet. . . . They are available to you in your local public library or in your own home.

If you have a computer and/or a hand held device you have access to dozens of the Pioneer databases which have been made available to all public libraries in the State of Utah by the Utah State Library and the Utah Department of Community and Culture.

These databases can be accessed by going to pioneer.utah.gov.
