Design and layout are wonderful, the children's area is wonderful. You just can't help not spending hours in this library. Go up to the roof and enjoy the view.

We only drove by this site, as we were short of time and were traveling with a dog. Still, the building has very interesting architecture. It's worth a drive-by.

The public library of Salt Lake City is absolutely beautiful! The children's area is amazing with play rooms, tiny child-sized reading books, and huge stuffed animals to relax on. There's also sensory stations that would be good for children with sensory-related issues. There are small...More

This was a quick stop to see the building. The walk to the top was quiet and crowds were friendly. There is more to this building than just books. I was surprised to see a hair salon on the first floor.

The glass elevator that takes visitors to the rooftop is not to be missed. I also loved the shops on the main floor . . . great place to buy gifts for fellow booklovers.

Yes. The SLC library has free computers for use on the third floor. Copies are available, but I am not sure of the price per copy.
