Salt Lake County Library has been listed in The Salt Lake Tribune’s Top Utah Workplaces for 2014, 2015, and 2016.

The successful librarian candidate for the Kearns branch will be able to present programs in Spanish and in English, including early literacy storytimes and family programs, with high energy and a love for children.
