We think so. The Children's Library downstairs is a favorite- the place as well as the story times. The art exhibits are fantastic. The online reservation service is very well-used and extremely convenient. The Dewey Lecture Series is phenomenal. The library staff members are all wonderful. The shops & Roasting Company- all superb.
And the building itself is breathtaking. I always recommend the City Library to visitors to Salt Lake, and they always thank me.
Pros: building , services, children's haven
