Field Trip: A trip through which participants study and learn firsthand.

There's nothing like a field trip!

The Cedar City Library is opening its doors and moving outside to more fully complete our mission to serve "as a source of self-education, personal enrichment and as a repository of local history." We're taking field trips.
