Lucky Day offers a limited collection of current bestsellers and popular DVDs to customers walking into the Library. Please note that the Lucky Day Collection has different borrowing guidelines: seven-day loan, no renewals, no holds, limit of two items at a time and $.25-a-day fines. We hope that you will consider using this new service at these libraries: Bingham Creek, Hunter, Sandy, West Jordan and Whitmore.
The library is excited to announce a new partnership with other community organizations to provide patrons access to the Community Exploration Card. Library cardholders can visit a number of Salt Lake County’s cultural centers for free by checking out the card from four of our libraries: Whitmore, Sandy, Hunter and West Jordan. Each card will give free admission to four people to Discovery Gateway, The Leonardo, Natural History Museum of Utah, Red Butte Garden and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts. The Community Exploration Card is valid for general admission but not for special events or exhibits. A limited number of cards are available for check out at the beginning of each month and must be used during that month. To provide equitable access for everyone, cards are limited to one per household in a 12-month period, and expire at the end of the designated month. Come to the library, check out the card and start exploring our community.
