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. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
