    Easily one of the most beautiful and innovative libraries in the country. Don't miss the gorgeous architecture or lovely shops in Library Square!

    The view from the roof of the library was awesome. I didn't look at the books, but there is A LOT, at least for someone like me. Homeless were inside using PC and reading, but they can use it too.

    Great architectural moment and perfect if distant people-chatter is conducive to your studying. That said—it's a little homeless-heavy.

    Check out the library store for some top notch stationary like Leuchterm 1917 note books, fridge magnets, and games.

    Designed by Moshe Safdie, the library opened in 2003. A six-story curving wall hugs a central daylgiht-filled plaza, and a rooftop garden offers sweeping views of the Utah's Salt Lake Valley. Read more

    Why don't you have a library card? Did you know, that in addition to books, you may also checkout movies, music and art? They even have a wide selection to download.

    Beautiful building but I found the library staff at the information counter rude and unhelpful. In addition if you live outside of salt Lake County the fee for a library card is $80

    Super cool library. However, it has literally the creepiest, most disgusting bathrooms I've ever encountered in my life. I've been to a rest stop in Wyoming with cleaner bathrooms.

    Awesome library. Hobos have seriously infested this place though. Bathrooms, computers, and I think one lives in the phone booth.

    Grab a coffee from first floor and head to to the rooftop to read. If you have the kids with you, enjoy the Childrens library. Great people watching, and yes some are homeless.

    Is there anything better than a sexy geek?! I say "No!" If you agree then, the SLCPL is the best place to go and find one. On any given day, you're going to see some eye candy. Best Days: Sat & Sun

    Here's my tip: the fourth floor balcony (It's across from the library proper, you go to the fourth floor and cross a sky bridge, but it's inside the building) is a great place to read. It's very quiet

    You dont need to have a library card if all you want to do is forget your meds and shout at random passersby while reeking of urine and BO.

    Gorgeous architecture and well-planned mixed use reminiscent of the Milan Galleria and Piazza Il Duomo where people go to be seen and people watch. Surrounded by green open space. Read more

    Stay off of the 2nd level. That is the young adult section and it is a little weird.
