20 Libraries That Will Make You Forget About Netflix

Published: 11/05/2016
By Matthew Holland, BLT — These spectacular libraries are a bookworm's Narnia. Public libraries are one of the main components of a successful city and a thriving community. They allow every individual, rich or poor, the ability to intellectually and personally grow. While most cities have some sort of a library inside of them, a few go above and beyond in some way. We've compiled a list of some of the most interesting, beautiful, and modern libraries across the United States. From robotic book retrieval systems to breathtaking views, each library has way more than books to offer its visitors.

Salt Lake City Public Library
210 East 400 South
Salt Lake City, UT 84111

The Salt Lake City Public Library is a state-of-the-art, imaginative building constructed in 2003 and designed by the internationally acclaimed architect, Moshe Safdie. The building is 240,000 square feet, 6 stories tall, and holds nearly one million books and materials. On the lower level there are shops and galleries while the top floors contain the reading and study rooms; far away from all the noise. Each floor is fittted with a spiral fireplace that creates an illusion down on the street below of a column of flame. The entire building is full of massive windows, allowing natural light in and offering a great view of the city and distanced mountains.
