Architect Moshe Safdie designed the Salt Lake City Library, whose interior is shown here, as a place to linger, not just find books. It includes a rooftop garden, cafe, shops and rotating art exhibits. The library hosts film lectures and, occasionally, live music. The Boise City Council is scheduled to vote Tuesday on a proposal to hire Safdie to design a new main library here.
