two New Choices

We are excited to announce two new choices for eMagazines and eNewspapers:

OverDrive
Flipster

Between these two platforms, more than 200 titles are available for you to download.

OverDrive has more than 125 periodicals to include Wall Street Journal, USA Today and The Washington Post.

Flipster is replacing Zinio – which will no longer be available after March 2016 – and offers titles such as People, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, Highlights, Sports Illustrated, Popular Science, Apple Magazine and O, The Oprah Magazine.

Both platforms are compatible on portable devices and computers and offer easy-to-use apps.

If you have questions or would like more information, please speak with a librarian, visit www.slcolibrary.org/downloadables or call Customer Service, 801-943-4636.

For the second year in a row, Salt Lake County Library Services was recognized as one of the Top Workplaces 2015 in the Wasatch Front; we are incredibly honored to be the only government entity to receive recognition.

Our ability to positively impact the lives of others is central to how we view our jobs and to our satisfaction with working at the Library. We are a thriving, innovative community hub because of the amazing people who make up our team – people who eagerly share and implement good ideas and are passionate partners, truly committed to improving the lives of our customers.

Salt Lake County Library has millions of resources available to the public – our most valuable resource is our employees. Thank you to all of our employees, volunteers, community partners and patrons – together we make a great team!

Trait Tree Photo Opp
Trait Tree

Ever wanted your photo to be in a museum? Here’s your chance…and it’s easy!

DATE: Saturday, February 13
TIME: 11 am-6 pm
PLACE: West Jordan Library, 8030 South 1825 West

Volunteers from Natural History Museum of Utah will help you identify what version of these four genetic traits you have: dimples, tongue curling, attached earlobes, and pointed hairline.

A professional photographer will take your photo and it will be featured in the Trait Tree during the Museum’s summer special exhibition, Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code (May 21 – September 5, 2016).

That’s all there is to it!

As a “thank you” for helping build the Trait Tree, you’ll receive a:

  • free Museum admission pass (so you can see your photo in the exhibit)
  • digital copy of your photo

 

Story Crossroads

Storytelling is an age-old activity designed to bring people together, make meaning of our lives, preserve the past and define the future – everybody has a story to tell.

Join us in January and February for a free 90-minute storytelling orientation workshop and two four-hour storytelling residencies designed to provide you basic and in-depth storytelling skills.

Library locations and workshop/residency dates and times are detailed on the Library calendar and at storycrossroads.com.
