I just love our library here in Salt Lake City, Utah. It has such amazing architecture, and it is so functional as a library with beautiful windows, and nooks and areas to read and research. It is a wonder in itself

Perhaps the best architecture in Salt lake City. Toured the place with out of town guests and they loved it. Then go out the back and visit the Leonardo.
