As a frequent visitor and admirer of the Provo City Library at Academy Square, I've been captivated by the charm and history of this architectural masterpiece.

Located in the heart of Provo, the library is not just a place for book lovers but a vibrant community hub filled with activities for everyone.

In 2024, the Provo City Library is set to outdo itself with an a series of events that promise fun, learning, and connection for all ages. From the  children's section to the reading rooms that offer a panoramic view of the Wasatch Mountains, the library provides the perfect backdrop for these events.

Nestled in the heart of Provo, it's impossible to miss Academy Square when you are driving down University Avenue. It's a stunning landmark that will surely capture your attention especially when it's your first time to see it!

I usually drive there, and finding parking is a breeze with the library's huge parking space. From I-15, I take the Provo Center Street Exit 265 and continue straight after the light at the end of the exit and cross all the way to University Avenue.

For those preferring public transit, the library is conveniently accessible, making it a smooth ride from anywhere in the city.

You can find the Provo City Library at Academy Square at 550 N. University Ave, Provo, UT 84601.

Provo City Library: History and Architecture

Stepping into the Provo City Library at Academy Square is like walking through the pages of history. Located at 550 North University Avenue, this building is not just a library but a historical landmark that has stood the test of time.

Fun Fact: This building was the first BYU - Brigham Young University before it was named BYU and moved to a different location!

Originally built in 1892 as the Brigham Young Academy, it has transformed over the years into the cultural heart of Provo. I always admire its beautiful Romanesque architecture, complete with turrets and arched windows, set against the backdrop of the Wasatch Mountains.

The library's rich past and its role in the community make it a fascinating place to explore, not just for books but for a piece of Provo's heritage. To learn more about Provo City Library, including the easiest steps to get your library card, check out this detailed post!

About the author of Move to Provo Utah Website 

Katerina Gasset

When I moved here I was blessed to have my daughter to help with different things you need to know when you move to a new place. I had background from living here before but things have changed a lot too since the '80s. 

We were able to get all the good places to eat down fast - since she knows all that and we have a lot of the same likes in food. But things like how to turn on my electricity or what power company services my home... well... I was at a total loss! 

I know that other people moving to Provo don't always have family here to guide and help them. And most people don't have a real estate agent who gives them a welcome package on all the important numbers and places they need to know. 

My goal is for this website to be your go to resource for everything you need to know before, during, and after you move here to Provo, Utah. I want you to have the best experience and love living here as much as I do
