r The Springville City mayor and city council have announced the hiring of Dan Mickelson as director of the Springville Public Library. Mickelson will replace former Library Director Pam Vaughn, who is retiring after working 11 years for Springville City.

Mickelson comes to the Springville Public Library with 15 years of library experience and more than eight years in library management at various branches within the Garfield County Public Library District located in western Colorado. During his time there, he was able to be a key part of the design and opening of a new library facility. His passion for innovative library services, programs and services attracted him to the Springville Public Library where he is excited to work with both staff and community members.

Both Mickelson and his wife Ashley received their undergraduate degrees in visual arts from Brigham Young University and are excited to make the Art City their home. Mickelson went on to obtain his master’s degree in library and information science from Clarion University of Pennsylvania and continues a life-long learning quest with his involvement in the American Library Association’s Certified Public Library Administrator program.
