The Salt Lake City Public Library is one of the most interesting buildings in Salt Lake City. It has unique architecture that is easy to spot, and hard to forget. Once inside, glass walls make the library look both futuristic and classic and an open and peaceful place to research, read, eat, or shop, while still feeling connected to the community, the city, and nature. Several boutique shops are fun to peruse and in the basement is a small art gallery and entrance to a theater where no doubt and interesting film or concert is taking place. Be sure to check out the constant events happening at the library. Outside there is a path to the top of the terrace where it offers spectacular views of the city. The grounds in general consist of fountains, gardens, bridges and an amphitheater. Many events occur here during the summer and it's always a blast! The library is situated next to the Leonardo Museum and the old City Hall. Both wonderful buildings that are of interest to locals and tourists alike.

WOW! What architecture!! This place is amazing and hard to explain. Nearly invisible elevators... all glass. Stores and shops inside. Four floors and work areas overlooking downtown Salt Lake City and the mountains. If I could work everyday from here I would, but was only in town so that my son could attend Comic Con and I was able to work from the library for the day. Very nice people. A lot of homeless and the parking cost $12 for 5 hours.

Parking is not easy but you can pay if you need to stay pass half hour, Sunday is free. They don’t make it easy for surrounding neighborhoods to access their books, nor can you print for free. Building is impressive, second floor fiction and teen, 3rd floor foreign literature. For the houseless people, there could be some kind of educational outreach program for them here.

Nice place to relax, go upstairs take random book as and enjoy the views or go down drink coffee and watch all floors of the library downstairs.

A huge library with everything you can think of. Not as quiet because there are so many people. Staff is friendly and very helpful. The view of the mountains is amazing. It was very clean for the amount of people I saw using the library.
