Learn about the art and science of mushroom cultivation with local mycologist Katie Lawson.
The workshop will begin with an introduction to mycology, exploring principles, terminology, and application of mushrooms in the home and garden. Then we will proceed to a hands-on group installation of oyster mushrooms.
This growing season, The City Library will host a series of gardening workshops to help you cultivate a thriving garden. Whether you are gardening at home, maintaining a plot in a community garden, or just want to learn more about gardening, we welcome everybody to join us for these free hands-on learning experiences. Workshops will be held the last Saturday of each month, from April to October.

NOTE: The Main Library's Rooftop Terrace is closed through 2022 for repairs and renovations.
Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The structure embraces a public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium.
A multi-level reading area along the Glass Lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the Library and the Crescent Wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
