It was great to have a place to escape to in the middle of a busy day of sightseeing downtown Seattle. The design of the building is very unique, and we went up to the top floor for the views. We also stopped by the rare book collection and the amazing librarian allowed us to read an illustrated copy of The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe from the 1800's!
The outside of the building alone is amazing because of the architecture and colors. On the inside, it is a great place to kick back and do whatever you want. There are homeless inside, but they do not disturb anything and it has a very cool, calm vibe coming from all directions. When you go higher, the views are even better than from the outside where you can see the city and building all in one.
Really abundant resources of books and videos. The environment is spacious and comfortable. The building itself is beautiful. On the highest level, you can have a good view of the city.
Great place to find some unique stuff. I like their the calm atmosphere here. They displayed the book in good manner. We can find great stuff to read because of the amazing collection. Perfect place for book lovers.
Great library with an awesome staff of librarians. If you enjoy reading, the Central Library gives you more than a couple areas to sit and crack open a book you picked from the many aisles of books to wander around and get lost in. Side note, being one of the funkiest buildings I've ever been to, it's a great destination if you are looking to photograph some interesting architecture or abstract angles this is a popular spot.
