The first library books in Utah were brought into the region circa 1851 under the direction of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Titles included translations of Greek and Latin classics and works by noted English authors. These volumes constituted the Utah Territorial Library. The collection was later divided between the Utah State Supreme Court Law Library and the University of Utah Library.

Within a year of Utah's admission to the Union in 1896, legislation was passed providing for the establishment of free public libraries. Under this law, the Free Public Library of Salt Lake City opened on February 14, 1898, on the top floor of the City-County Building. Its core collection consisted of 11,910 books from the Pioneer Library Association. Annie E. Chapman, librarian for the Pioneer Library Association, was chosen for the same post at the new library to facilitate its transition from a private to a public institution. Miss Chapman served in this capacity until her death in 1903.

By the 1950s, the crowded conditions in the Main Library on State Street made a new building necessary. Through the tireless work of two library board presidents, Jacob A. Kahn and Gail Plummer, plans were formulated for obtaining a site and constructing a new library. The building program was included in a city capital improvement bonding program which passed successfully. A ground-breaking ceremony was held on December 28, 1962, at 209 East 500 South, and dedication ceremonies took place on October 30, 1964.

The new building embodies the idea that a library is more than a repository of books and computers - it reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The east side of the block was preserved as a peaceful urban green space.

Our system will be down Sunday, Feb. 12th at 6 Pacific Time for 1 to 3 hours for maintenance. During this time the library catalog and other services requiring library card authentication will be unavailable.

The library is offering a full range of services inside, and curbside checkout service is also available. For curbside checkout, please place holds using the library catalog. You will receive a notice when your items are ready for pickup. When you go to pick them up, call library staff at 520-515-4900 for assistance.
