Well done building both inside and out. Take a walk up the ramp to the top for a nice view. Just such a beautiful building for Salt Lake City. And of course, a good library.

Great events are consistently offered to the public, free of charge. The lobby has fun little shops and a few tables for people watching. The location is great for visitors and the grounds provide a nice spot to stop and relax.

I'm really interested in reading and libraries but I sought out the library because you can climb the stairs to the top and take photographs of the city and the mountains.

Aside from the gorgeous architecture, the library has a rooftop where you get a 360° view of the Salt Lake valley, and there are also lots of fun little shops to explore!

Awesome library. Highly recommend going to this library either as a tourist, reader or enjoyer of architectural achievements.

This library is very organized for books and reading. There is a rooftop garden but it looked like it needed some help. We went there for an art fest which was fun. Easy to get to via the light rail.

This building is beautiful inside and out! I highly recommend making your way to the roof (either via the indoor stairs or elevators, or the outdoor ramp) to see the great view of the valley.

This flagship of the Salt Lake City library system has an indoor atrium with shops, glass elevators, an entire children's floor with whimsical reading nooks, reflecting pool, and automated check out and check in systems. It is expansive, and the staff are always friendly.

From as a diverse selection of books and other texts/media to a plethora of unique little shops, the SLCPL is a must for anyone who lives in the area!

This library is very well planned and has an architectural lay-out. One is sure to love this place. The library is situated in the heart of the city.
