Anderson-Foothill Branch 1135 South 2100 East Salt Lake City, UT 84108

Celebrate 99 years of women's right to vote. We'll have activities, voter registration, and a panel discussion featuring local female politicians sharing what voting means to them.

On August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified:

“The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

We'll watch clips from the movie Iron Jawed Angels, which tells the story of how half of this country's population fought for their right to vote. The League of Women Voters will be on hand to make sure you are registered to vote in the right district. You can also enjoy popcorn, make buttons, and contribute to a communal "A Vote Is:____" banner.

About the library

The pleasing design of the Anderson-Foothill Branch has two unique elements as part of its plan. The first is a passive solar energy design that includes earth berming, window placement for solar heating, and zone supplemental heating/cooling. The second element of this 14,900 square foot community library built in 1985, expanded in 1992 and in 2002, is a modular design.

The Anderson-Foothill Branch has a meeting room available for public use with tables, chairs, and a projector screen. The Anderson-Foothill Branch's outdoor amphitheater is a popular location for summer concerts. Free parking is available to the north and south of the building, and free wi-fi access is provided throughout the library.
