One of the noteworthy aspects of Salt Lake City's Main Library are the locally-owned and -operated shops and services at Library Square. Drop by the shops inside and outside the Main Library to pick up a thoughtful gift, fresh plants and flowers, locally-made art, or a delicious bite to eat. Services include a writing center to provide the community with the support they need for any writing project and the broadcasting center of KCPW radio. Read below for full details.
