Salt Lake City Public Library reviews
While I have only been inside the library once prior to closing due to Covid restrictions, the exterior design and grounds are spectacular. Very modern European in appearance. more »
We love coming to the library and enjoying the atmosphere and wandering around the grounds and enjoying the architecture. All you need is an ID for a library card! more »
The structure is beautiful and there's a lot of great reading options inside. extremely wide selection of books, and lots of online resources available if you have a library card. The librarians were helpful and knew what they were doing. Very spacious, with lots of room to read and study. My one complaint is that they don't have free parking.
Great Staff! Every staff member I came into contact with was incredibly helpful and kind. Like any urban library, you can expect to see people from all walks of life - the staff there treat everyone with patience and kindness. The library itself is lovely, easy to navigate, and has numerous resources to search for and find your book.
