An inviting bookstore where customers can seek out popular titles like "The Essential House.". The Scene Hugo Lerner, co-owner of Bibliotect and an architect himself, is explaining the genesis of his small, well-stocked store located in ArtSpace: "I have a passion for books and architecture and I've always thought it would be a great thing to have not just a bookstore, but a social center where people can come together and talk about arts, architecture, and design."

Lerner says his audience consists of middle-class professionals with an interest in the world outside Utah. In addition to new and used books, Bibliotect boasts an espresso bar and regular art exhibits.
