Salt Lake City Public Library's newest library, the Marmalade Branch, had its grand opening Saturday.

The branch, at 280 West 500 North in Salt Lake City, is The City Library's eighth location. The two-story facility will offer more than 18,000 square feet of space for the growing Marmalade and West Capitol Hill neighborhoods.

Saturday's celebration began with comments from city officials and family activities continued through the day.

The new branch has a children's library, public access computer stations, a multipurpose room and a café. It also offers study rooms, an outdoor plaza, and more than 40,000 new circulating materials.

The Marmalade Branch will be open Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. until 9 p.m.; Friday through Saturday, 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.; and will be closed on Sundays.
