We are taking full social distancing and cleaning measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. You can read more about our safety procedures at slcpl.org.

The City Library would like to thank our Maintenance Team for working hard to clean up the storm debris at our branches. We also want to say thank you to all the community members who have been going above and beyond to help their neighbors during this tough time. We have been constantly reminded this year of why we are so proud of our community and our staff. . Our Anderson-Foothill Branch and Sprague Firehouse Express are still affected by the power outages but all other locations will be doing Holds To-Go and Phone services today.
September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide join together to remind parents, caregivers, and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning. This September, DC’s Wonder Woman is embarking on a new mission to champion the power of a library card as the Honorary Chair of Library Card Sign-up Month. Today’s libraries have programs and resources that go far beyond books. From virtual storytimes, gardening, language learning, and craft tutorials, to downloading eBooks and audiobooks and streaming local music, there’s something for everyone at the library. Now is the perfect time to explore all that the Library has to offer. Visit your City Library at slcpl.org. #librarycardsignup #saltlakecity #myslcpl #slcpl #wonderwoman
