Awesome building

Very cool architecture, fun place to visit and walk around. Go to the top and check out the view. Sit by a cozy fireplace and read. Fun place with a lot nearby to check out too.

This was one big modern library. It was several blocks from the hotel but within a short commute I didn't like the parking meter system but it worked out. A person has a maximum time limit at the meter and then has to move your vehicle. The library and information valuable has a perfect place for travelers to seek everything... More

The is such an amazing building for a library. Inside is amazing and large. They keep a wide selection of books, movies and CD's. My mother whom is Korean is able to get her books here and still has yet to read them all due to the mass amounts of books. It is also very nice around the library grounds.... More

SLC has really got it going on- the community space that they've created at the City Library puts them at the forefront nationally. Firstly, the building itself should be on every visitor's destination list: the building itself is incredible, but the rooftop views are unparalleled. Walk in on the ground floor, take the elevator to the highest floor and walk... More

First the spacious building with all the glass is stunning! The location across from the historic Salt Lake City & County Building and across the plaza from The Leonardo is like seeing 3 special sites with one visit. The beautiful little shops inside the Atrium were a surprise and we had a coffee at Salt Lake Roasters, sat at a... More

This is a very cool building with artists and tiny shops, in addition to the library itself. This is also a great place to host events of various sizes and the courtyard with water features is lovely.

This is one of the biggest things I miss about living in SLC. Every city should have a library like this one. I recently moved to Vegas and wished there was a location like this here. I loved going here to work or read. While I was in school I would find a comfortable booth near an outlet and spend... More

Very interesting architecture, like no other library I have ever seen. Get a library card and get free access to lynda.com trainings.

If you like books or architecture, you need to check out the SLC Public Library! I had never been until recently. You could get lost amongst the racks for days. A must-see in Salt Lake City!
