“A dynamic civic resource that promotes free and open access to information, materials and services to all members of the community to advance knowledge, foster creativity, encourage the exchange of ideas, build community and enhance quality of life.”
I discovered this gorgeous new library at QuizzyLizzy’s Web 2.0 Experience (perhaps this is Library 2.0?). What makes this one special is the huge public square (really more of a curvy triangle) where people can gather, hold festivals, and listen to lectures at the outdoor amphitheatre. You can also walk along the top of the curved wall at the right of the picture to reach the rooftop garden and enjoy the 360° view. The indoor spaces sound wonderful too, with lots of natural light and views of the Wasach mountains. The library runs programs to bring together diverse groups and to create links with other cultural institutions in the city. They aimed high with this library, and it looks like they hit the bull’s-eye.
