Take the glass elevator up to the roof and enjoy 360 degree views of the Salt Lake Valley.
With nearly 250,000 square feet of floor space, a six-story open glass lobby, and award-winning, modern architecture, this work of art houses the Salt Lake City Library's main collection. With something for everyone, it features an third-floor art gallery, special children's area, public computers, digital media, plenty of reading couches, work desks, and free DSL. Underground parking is free for the first thirty minutes ($1.50 for every thirty minutes thereafter), and can be reached on the northern side of the building, on 400 South Street. During the summer, be sure to check out the rooftop garden, or other happenings in the campus's outdoor Library Square.
