As an addict for books, whether audio or on paper, I enjoy buildings that possess books.
The Seattle Public Library has many branches, so this is NOT their only building! I mean, my hometown has a great main library, but that main library and all of the branches would fit inside of this main library with room to spare. How cool is 11 stories?
Also, there are many windows, so it’s also a good view of the city.
Never you mind, you can walk – without stairs – through the non-fiction section. There is a slight slant, but no stairs for ease of access to all of this wonderful knowledge. If you ever get to Seattle, stop by this architectural and bibliophile amazement.
(Side note: It’s not exactly homey, like my own city’s libraries, but it is a sight to behold.)
