A Case of the Mondays: Library and Canyon Tours

Statistics have shown that people in the United States hate Monday more than any other day of the week. However, at Nomen Global Mondays always come with excitement and rare opportunities. The last two weeks, Nomen Global has taken its students to two must-see destinations in Provo: the historic Provo Library and the beautiful Bridal Veil Falls.

Provo Library
The Provo Library, originally built as Brigham Young Academy, was first erected in 1892. It was used as a school for decades until Brigham Young Academy became Brigham Young University. The city's library system was established in 1905, but lacked an ideal place to house the city's books. The current Provo Library building was actually an abandoned building until 1997 when the city funded a complete restoration of the building through generous donations and grants. Today, the Provo Library is one of the oldest and most beautiful buildings in the city.

Last Monday, Nomen Global students took 2 different tours of this historic library. We split up into two groups with two different tour guides; one took us on a tour of the original sections of the building while the other took us on a tour of the new wing that holds most of the books. We learned about the different programs available to the public as well as how to get a Provo Library card.

Bridal Veil Falls
As summer comes to a close and fall sweeps over Provo, our students are noticing many changes in nature and the weather. We took a trip up Provo Canyon to the famous Bridal Veil Falls to talk about and collect different types of leaves at the start of this cooler season.

In addition to learning new vocabulary for the different trees along the Wasatch Front, we enjoyed a beautiful morning near the waterfall.
