The Big Read
The Big Read gives communities the opportunity to come together to read, discuss, and celebrate literature. From now through April 2015, The City Library will be hosting events and book discussions centered on Julie Otsuka's novel "When the Emperor Was Divine". The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in partnership with Arts Midwest.
The Salt Lake City Library hosts art exibits throughout the year. We also lists citywide exhibits here and in our events calendar. If you are a local artist, click on "Call for Entries" to get involved.
