Doors of Opportunity Installation

Wasatch County Library is partnering with Park City Library and Habitat for Humanity of Summit and Wasatch Counties, Utah to honor two lives of service:  President Jimmy Carter and his wife, First Lady Rosalyn Carter.

Symbolizing the Doors of Opportunity the Carters opened, each library will host a dedicated interactive installation. Beginning as plain, white doors, the public is encouraged to give them meaning by writing notes of thanks and tribute to the Carters for their work for affordable housing.

Along with the installation, Wasatch County Library will display resources and information on affordable housing and the Carters.

Beginning in 1984, the Carters’ volunteerism with Habitat for Humanity grew to span 36 years, working alongside more than 104,000 volunteers in 14 countries to build, renovate and repair 4,390 homes.

Families and individuals partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage when purchasing the home.

President Carter entered hospice in February 2023 and celebrated his 99th birthday in October. Mrs. Carter passed away on November 19, 2023. The couple had been married for 77 years.

The doors will be on display during regular library hours through April 5 at
