CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- The American Institute of Architects has honored two southern Utah buildings for their architectural design.
The Dixie State College Delores Dore' Eccles Fine Arts Center received an honor award, and the Cedar City Public Library received the a merit award.
Both buildings were designed by the Kansas-based Gould Evans Associates, which has an office in Salt Lake City.
Dixie State College's Eccles Fine Arts Center will be dedicated Friday.
It has a 300-seat concert hall, lobby and 500-seat theater.
The Cedar City library opened a year ago September. Besides accommodating more people in the library for Internet access, officials say there was a 16 percent increase of items check out.
That equals about 30-thousand more books.
