Errin Pederson and Mike Nordenstrom talked about Salt Lake City’s Main Public Library. Opened in February 2003, the building was designed by architect Moshe Safdie on the premise that a library is more than a repository for books. With 240,000 square feet of space and over 500,000 books, the library also includes a public plaza with shops and services, a six story walkable wall, a rooftop garden, and panoramic views of Salt Lake City’s skyline.
C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Salt Lake City, Utah, from May 4-8 to feature the history and literary life of the community.
