Items that were borrowed before we began our temporary closure in March had a due date of June 30, which means you might have some items that are overdue or due back soon. The City Library never charges late fees, but you may be charged replacement fees for longstanding unreturned items. Please visit our website and log in to your account to see which items are due back. You can return your borrowed items to any City Library location by using our outdoor book drops.📚 slcpl.org
The City Library is now offering print services for curbside pick up! You can email documents and Library Staff will print them for free.

To use this service, send an email with your document attached, and be sure to include your contact information and print preferences. Documents must be sent to the email address corresponding with your desired pick up location. To learn more, and to find the email addresses for each Library location, please visit the link in our bio.
This month, explore a curated set of titles, some about self-discovery and contemplation, some that will simply astonish you, and others that will inspire you — and enable you — to get out and have an adventure of your own in the vast wilderness that America offers. Link in Bio. #SLCPLPICKS
The City Library has donated our surplus children's books to schools that offer grab-and-go meals this summer. So far, we have been able to donate over 3,000 brand new books to 10 different elementary schools! The elementary schools include: Backman, Edison, Escalante, Franklin, Parkview, Rose Park, Pacific Heritage Academy, Meadowlark, and Whittier. Principals and school librarians have all expressed their gratitude, and we have all shared with each other how much we miss the kids and families that we serve.
The Teen Squad is The City Library's teen summer volunteer program. Usually, volunteers sign up the public for our annual summer reading program and assist librarians with running summer events. This summer is a little different. With our buildings closed to the public, we've created a special virtual experience for our volunteers this year. Our 2020 group includes 40 local teens! Each of this year's volunteers are working together, and with our branch Teen Librarians to create a library-related project of their choosing. Read more about our volunteers and their projects in our weekly "Meet the Teen Squad" blog articles. Additionally, some Teen Squad projects need your support and input. Take a look at the link in our bio for details about how you can get involved and support our volunteers.
