The Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake’s Sacred Paths Youth Culture Class participants created tribal flags to recognize and celebrate their tribal heritage for Indigenous Month. These tribal flags recognize: Ute Indian Tribe, Navajo Nation, San Carlos Apache Tribe, Eastern Shoshone Tribe, Northern Arapaho Tribe, and the Crow Agency. These flags are hanging in the Main Library’s Urban Room. Since the interior of our buildings are currently closed, we wanted to share photos of these beautiful creations. @urbanindiancenterofsaltlake

Our friends at the Natural History Museum of Utah have put together these Curiosity Kits, and you can grab one for yourself at the Chapman, Glendale, or Day-Riverside branches! These kits are designed for elementary-aged children and highlight different aspects of Utah's history. Each kit has learning materials and everything you need for a fun at-home craft. You can choose the Anthropology Kit and weave a basket in the style of Utah's native cultures, or build a dinosaur with the Paleontology Kit. These kits are free and yours to keep, while supplies last. To get your Curiosity Kit, request one at the Holds To-Go curbside pickup area at the Chapman, Glendale, or Day-Riverside branches.
Now you can stay connected on the go with a City Library Wi-Fi Hotspot! A Hotspot is a device that lets you connect your computer, smartphone, or tablet to a wi-fi signal. You can place a hold for one of our Hotspots, pick it up at your favorite City Library location, and borrow it for two weeks. Link in Bio.
