The Library – An unsung hero


Some factoids I’ve learned about the Salt Lake Library System. Did you know:

  1. The Salt Lake library system provides a free Lynda.com subscription for all members?
  2. Certain digital books lent to you can be sent to your Amazon Kindle account? This feature has saved me hundreds of dollars. 🙂
  3. Has volunteer programs such as the Tech League mentors program,  an “initiative to build a more digitally inclusive community”
  4. Has a Creative Lab with all sorts of goodies like 3D printers, sewing machines, audio recording booths which are free for all patrons’ use.
  5. An up-to-date listing of all events happening across all the library branches
  6. Has a variety of alternate ways (Overdrive, RBDigital, 3M Cloud Library) to read ebooks and has mobile phone apps for easy access

I could go on but please check out the slcpl.org website. If you don’t live in SLC, then check out your county’s public library system for other goodies. 🙂
