Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie, embodies the idea that a library is more than a repository of books and computers; it reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The building, which opened in February 2003, is double the previous space with 240,000 square feet for more than 500,000 books and other materials, and room for the collection to grow.

Chinese culture has been fascinating and yet mysterious to many people in the West. Beijing, Xinjiang, and Taipei are the most well-known places in China and are representative of Chinese culture. These photos, taken by unnamed photographers from China, depict the daily life in these cities and provide a bird’s eye view of the lifestyle of Chinese people.
